Assessment

A continuous evaluation will be undertaken to evaluate the performance of the student within the internship in the centre and during the seminars and tutorials at the faculty.

The following observations will be used:

  • Report of the internship and activities developed during the stay. The report will be send in the MOODLE virtual space on June, 17, this is a mandatory activity.
  • Attendance, participation and implication in the seminars (5 in total) and tutorials held at the faculty. The seminars (worshop) will be develop on: oct, 1 / nov, 26 / feb, 18 / may, 13 / june, 17. The attendance is mandatory.
  • Perception of the field tutor with regards to the student´s performance in the centre during the internship. 

To pass the course it is necessary to get a minimum of 5 out of 10 for each of the three observations. The evaluation of the report and the attendance, participation and implication in the seminars will be done by the faculty tutor and the student (through a self-evaluation report), whereas the evaluation of the performance in the centre will be done by the field tutor

The student must do the total number of the hours in the centre (300 hours) and attend the mandatory seminars (36 hours) and tutorials at the university. In cases where the attendance is not achieved, the final mark will be “Not evaluable”.

At any moment, the center could write a report that clearly explains the lack of progress and negative results of the student. If it happens, will automatically result in a fail in this module and the final mark would be 3. 

The internship report must be written in a proper and accurate way.  Learners are expected to display academic skills, which include the abilities of expressing themselves fluently and accurately as well as being able to write academic texts. The report will not be able to be resubmitted to increase the final mark. 

In accordance with UAB regulations, plagiarism or copying of any individual or group activity will be penalised with a mark of 0 for that paper.

The date of submission of the final report is 17 June 2021 through Moodle. The feedback will be provided maximum one month after the report being delivered and tutors will give the student an assessment report.
