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

Evaluation

 

At the end of the semester the knowledge of the themes and the suggested readings will be evaluated, requiring an assimilation of the themes equivalent to the reference manuals' content.

 The final grade will be obtained from the note of two exams, which will average with a monographic work.

 The written exams will serve to evaluate the theoretical content and will count for 25% each of the final grade. The monographic work will worth 50% of the final grade.

 The student who does not write or deliver the exam or course work will be considered "Not Evaluable"; their presentation implies that the student wants to be evaluated and qualified.

The recovery of evaluable activities will be carried out during the re-evaluation period.

 

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.
