Methodology and grading
- 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.
- Problem-based learning: Develop active learning strategies through problem solving that promote thinking, experimentation, and decision making in the student.
- Solving exercises and problems: Exercise, test, and apply previous knowledge through routine repetition.
OPTION A: (Attendance at theoretical and practical classes): To be eligible for this option requires that students attend 80% of the practical classes (two absences allowed).
- Theoretical exam (50%): Students will conduct a written test at the end of the year in which the level of knowledge of the different theoretical contents will be assessed during the course and seminars. This exam will consist of an objective test of 50 multiple choice questions with one correct answer (multiple choice) where each "n-1" answers answered incorrectly is less a question answered correctly "n" number of options (being questions). That is, if the question has 4 answer choices for every three wrong questions, the correct question is subtracted. Unanswered questions not deducted score.
To overcome the theoretical module, the student / a will have to get a note of 5.00, valued
a total of 10 points, in the above test.
This exam will be worth 50% of the final grade for the course.
- Memory of practices (20%): Students must submit the records of each practice, resolving each of the issues raised by the teacher. Correctness and originality is valued in solving theoretical and practical assumptions or tasks set; the student presents all the practices along the course; The correct presentation of work (typing, graphics and composition); and setting the dates set for the delivery of each of the practices.
- Final work (20%): Students must perform as a group work related to the practical application of the course content, to be established and agreed with the teachers during the development of it. It follows the established script will assess the suitability of the selected population, correctness and originality of the proposal, the correct presentation of work and setting the dates set for delivery.
- Attitude (10%) attendance at practical classes are taken into account, as well as seminars taught, involvement and active participation in the various theoretical and practical classes.
The final grade will be the sum of the partial notes of the different sections, according to percentages established. To pass the course is a necessary condition to obtain at least half the score in each of the sections.
OPTION B: (NO assistance to the theoretical and practical classes)
- Theoretical exam (50%): The theoretical and practical written test this option will have the same characteristics as described for the OPTION A.
The review must be approved in order to overcome the theoretical part of the course and thus make half with the note obtained in the practical part.
- Theoretical and practical exam (50%): Students must take a written test where your level of knowledge will be assessed with respect to the subject taught during practical classes in different contents.
This test will include questions n medium-long development in that students must master to relate theoretical concepts to solve properly and assumptions and practical problems.
The review must be approved in order to pass the practical part of the course and thus make half with the note obtained from the theoretical part.
It is considered passing the test if its rating is equal or higher than 5 out of 10.
The final grade will be the average of the partial marks for both sections. To pass the course is a necessary condition to obtain at least half the score in each of the sections.
Practices are NOT required for either evaluation option.
- Theoretical exam (70%): The students will carry out a written test at the end of the course in which the degree of knowledge of the different theoretical contents taught during the course, as well as the seminar, will be assessed. This test will consist of an objective test of 4 open-ended questions (5 questions) and 30 multiple-choice questions (5 questions) with a single correct answer (test type) in which for each "n-1" question answered correctly (being "n" the number of options of the questions). That is, if the question has 4 choices of answers, for every three erroneous questions, a correct question will be subtracted. Unanswered questions will not detract from the score.
- Group work (30%): The students must carry out a practical application related to the contents of the subject, which will be established and agreed upon with the teacher during the course's development. The follow-up of the established script, the adaptation to the selected population, the correction and originality of the proposal, the correct presentation of the work and the adjustment to the dates established for the delivery will be evaluated.
- Theoretical exam (100%): The students will carry out a written test at the end of the course in which the degree of knowledge of the different theoretical contents taught during the course, as well as the seminar, will be assessed. This test will consist of an objective test of 4 open-ended questions (5 questions) and 30 multiple-choice questions (5 questions) with a single correct answer (test type) in which for each "n-1" question answered correctly (being "n" the number of options of the questions). That is, if the question has 4 choices of answers, for every three erroneous questions, a correct question will be subtracted. Unanswered questions will not detract from the score.
In both option A and option B, you must pass the two parts of the test (test and open) to do media. In case of only approving one of the parts, it will be kept only for the September call for the same academic year.
During the theoretical classes will be able to carry out tasks to be delivered in the moment and that can assume up to 0.5 points EXTRA in the note of the subject (as long as the student has surpassed the 5 in the evaluation).
