Assessment

There will be no final exam.

 

We will use a model of continuous assessment; not only sufficient achievement of competencies will be assessed, but also the progressive acquisition of knowledge, daily work and participation.

 

During the course, 4 tests will be carried out, which will value the comprehension and written and oral expression and the use of grammar and vocabulary. Each of these tests will have a weight of 23% of the overall mark. Taking these tests later than the established dates means that their score will not be out of 10, but out of 8.5.

 

4% of the mark will be related to class attendance, daily work, participation and attitude.

 

The other 4% of the mark will be related to the delivery of the guided exercises. Presenting these exercises later than the established dates means that their score will not be on 100%, but on 85%.

 

Any unacceptable practice (handing in work other than that requested, identity fraud, very bad writing, copying in exams, etc. implies the absolute suspension of the subject).

 

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.

 

A student who has completed less than 2/3 of the evaluation activities will be considered 'NOT EVALUABLE'.

 

To participate in the re-assessment, the student must have been previously assessed in a series of activities whose weight equals a minimum of 2/3 of the total grade. Only those students who, having failed, have at least a median final grade of 3.5 are entitled to re-assessment. Some tasks cannot be re-assessed (participation in class, oral presentations, exercises made in class).

 

If the tests cannot be done face-to face, their format will be adapted (maintaining their weighting) to the possibilities offered by the UAB virtual tools. Homework, activities, and class participation will be done through forums, wikis, or exercise discussions through Teams, etc. The teacher will ensure that the student can access them or offer alternative ways, which are available to them.

 

Particular cases: students who already know Basque have an assessment system, which in principle has a limit of 8 out of 10. To specify their model, they must come to a specific tutorial.

 

At the time of each assessment activity, the teacher will inform the students of the procedure and the date of the revision of the grades.
