Metodología docente

Evaluación (instrumentos de evaluación, criterios de evaluación y porcentaje sobre la calificación final.)

Evaluación Ordinaria

Article 17 of the UGR Assessment Policy and Regulations establishes that the ordinary assessment session (convocatoria ordinaria) will preferably be based on the continuous assessment of students, except for those who have been granted the right to a single final assessment (evaluación única final), which is an assessment method that only takes a final exam into account.

With the purpose of assessing the acquisition of the contents and competencies to develop in the subject, the following assessment procedure will be used, continuous assessment being optional.

  • It will be conducted an ongoing evaluation of student training in order to assess (shown in parenthesis the weight of each item in the final assessment):
  • The acquisition of skills, aptitudes and knowledge derived from the course through a final exam. The written exam will consist in short questions and/or exercises about the contents studied in the course (50%).
  • Active participation in discussion sessions and the degree of interest of the interventions. It will consider the level of student involvement in the subject matter and the degree of ongoing monitoring of the development of the course (10%).
  • The resolution of exercises and case studies raised (10%).
  • The precision and clarity in exhibitions, seminars and work. It will be necessary to made at least one exhibition per student (20%)
  • The positive attitude of students and their involvement in the practical sessions in these areas of work (10%).

Sessions attendance is computed as the percentage of the sessions the student assist (including seminars specific to this subject). Participation is measured by presentations of exercises, press article and answers to quiz during the classes.

Evaluación Extraordinaria

Article 19 of the UGR Assessment Policy and Regulations establishes that students who have not passed a course in the ordinary assessment session (convocatoria ordinaria) will have access to an extraordinary assessment session (convocatoria extraordinaria). All students may take part in this extraordinary assessment session, regardless of whether or not they have followed continuous assessment activities. In this way, students who have not carried out continuous assessment activities will have the opportunity to obtain 100% of their mark by means of an exam and/or assignment.

Students who failed or do not realize the assessment of the first call (ongoing evaluation or single final assessment) may realize a special exam. 100% of the grade will correspond to that obtained in a final assessment of the following type:

  • Written exam consisting in short questions and/or exercises about the contents studied in the course (100%)

Evaluación única final

Article 8 of the UGR Assessment Policy and Regulations establishes that students who are unable to follow continuous assessment methods due to justifiable reasons shall have recourse to a single final assessment (evaluación única final), which is an assessment method that only takes a final exam into account.

In order to opt for a single final assessment (evaluación única final), students must send a request, using the corresponding online procedure, to the coordinator of the master’s programme, in the first two weeks of the course or in the two weeks following their enrolment (if the enrolment has taken place after the classes have already begun). The coordinator will communicate this information to the relevant teaching staff members, citing and verifying the reasons why the student is unable to follow the continuous assessment system.

In this case, the assessment will comprise:

  • The single final assessment is obtained as 100% of the grade through an assessment of the same type as the special exam described in the previous section.
