Passing the course requires from the student the demonstration that she/he masters both theoretical and practical contents of the subject. Theoretical contents will be evaluated by means of Multiple-Choice questions which may be supplemented with open questions and/or problems, whose contribution to the final exam score will be established in the corresponding call. In the Extraordinary Call of December the examination may consist exclusively of such open questions and/or problems. Practical activities are mandatory and student's score will result from the sum of three components: - 4 points max. (out of 10): attendance control and direct observation of the student behaviour in the classroom, laboratory or computer room. - 2 points max. (out of 10): answer to questions and, when applicable, graphical representations of data obtained during the practical sessions. - 4 points max. (out of 10): specific examination on practical activities (multiple-choice questions). Subject Final Mark will result from applying the following percentages: 70%: Theory score + 20%: Practice score + 10%: Group Essay/Seminars/Scientific Speeches/Tutorials It is an essential requisite for the student to pass the course that she/he scores at least "5" both in theory and in practice.
