Prerequisites

By obtaining the minimum of credits in basic training subjects, students have demonstrated to have acquired the basic competences and they will be able to express themselves orally and in writing.

For this reason, any spelling and expression errors that may be committed will lead to a score decrease in the final grade.

Activities, practical sessions and papers submitted in the course must be original and under no circumstances will the total or partial plagiarism of third-party materials published on any medium be admitted. Any submission of non-original material without properly indicating its origin will automatically result in a failure rating (0).

It is also expected that students know the general rules of submission of an academic work. However, students could apply the specific rules that the teacher of the subject may indicate to them, if they deem it necessary.

Assessment

The evaluation of the subject will be carried out starting from the realization of a series of activities in which the following aspects will be evaluated: 

- The assimilation of theoretical contents;

- the practical application of the contents;

- attendance and participation in class.

The following activities are required for the evaluation:

- a test for evaluating the assimilation of theoretical contents (25%),

- a check to verify the practical application in text comments (25%) and

- a final work (50%).

The professor of the subject will establish minimum requirements on the basis of which the student will be able to overcome it.

To pass the subject all the evaluation activities must be done within the time allowed. The minimum admission grade required to pass each of the practical activities,considering it on the average, must be equal to or greater than 3.5 points.

The students who do not perform any of the activities or tests will be considered "Not evaluated". The preparation of an activity implies the students' will to be evaluated in the subject and, therefore, their presentation to the evaluation and corresponding call.

Students may apply for re-evaluation only in the case they have not performed or have suspended those activities that don't involve more than 35% of the total of the evaluation. In no case may the final work be repeated in the re-evaluation.If the work is suspended, the subject can only be approved when the average with the other evaluation activities allows it.

The completion of spelling, expression, lexicon and syntax errors will have a penalty of 0.25 on the final grade of each activity.

Obviously the papers submitted must be original and under no circumstances will the total or partial plagiarism of third-party materials published on any medium be admitted.

In the event of a student committing any irregularity that may lead to a significant variation in the grade awarded to an assessment activity, the student will be given a zero for this activity, regardless of any disciplinary process that may take place. In the event of several irregularities in assessment activities of the same subject, the student will be given a zero as the final grade for this subject.

In the event that tests or exams cannot be taken onsite, they will be adapted to an online format made available through the UAB’s virtual tools (original weighting will be maintained). Homework, activities and class participation will be carried out through forums, wikis and/or discussion on Teams, etc. Lecturers will ensure that students are able to access these virtual tools, or will offer them feasible alternatives.
