Metodología docente

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

Evaluación Ordinaria

According to the Rules of assessment and grading of the students of the University of Granada (latest modification approved by the Governing Board on 26th October 2016), the assessment of students’ academic performance will reflect public, objective and impartial criteria, and will preferably be continuous and ongoing.

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.

Mandatory attendance and class assignments are required in at least 70% of the classes. Besides, the students could fulfill the final grade, only with a positive grade in final exam.

Under these two conditions, the evaluation and graduation system is:

  • Final exam (open and closed answers about the subjects of the syllabus): 50%.
  • Research paper (elaboration of written paper): 50%

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 don´t do the assessment of the first call (ongoing evaluation or single final assessment) may do a special exam.

100% of the grade will correspond to that obtained in a final assessment of the following type:

  • Final extraordinary exam (open and closed answer about the subjects of the syllabus): 50%
  • Research paper: 50%

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.

100% of the grade will correspond to that obtained in a final assessment of the following type:

  • Final exam (open and closed answer about the subjects of the syllabus): 100%
