- Case studies: Learning through the analysis of actual or simulated cases in order to interpret and resolve them by employing various alternative solution procedures.
- Cooperative learning: Develop active learning through cooperative working strategies among students and promote shared responsibility to reach group goals.
- Lecture: Pass on knowledge and activate cognitive processes in students, encouraging their participation.
- Solving exercises and problems: Exercise, test, and apply previous knowledge through routine repetition.
The final mark of the course will be the result, on the one hand, of the continuous assessment of the student throughout the teaching semester, and, on the other hand, a written examination at the end of that semester. In such case, in order to pass the subject, the student must obtain, at least, the grade of 5 points in each part.
The mark obtained by the student during the continuous assessment process can amount to 30% of the final mark. This portion will be divided into 2 sections: 10% will be obtained through the active participation of the student in class and their attendance at seminars and the remaining 20% will be the result of the case studies and projects made by the students.
The rest of the mark (70%) will be obtained in an exam on site in which the degree of knowledge and competences obtained by the student and the practical applications of this knowledge to solve specific cases will be assessed. In the overmentioned exam on site, the examined topics will be tha management of the tax power under Spanish law (didactc unit I), Regional Treasury (didactc unit II) and Local Treasury (didactc unit III). This exam will include 2 theoretical questions and the resolution of 3 practical case studies. Regarding the assessment criteria, the highest grading possible, bearing in mind the content of the handbook and the subject explained in class, will be of two points in each of the theoretical questions and practical case studies.
Those students who have not chosen the continuous assessment system will be qualified exclusively on the basis of the final exam of the subject, which will be scored on a maximum of 10 points, as previously indicated.
