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 delivery of the report of practices and activities carried out in the center will be made on June 15, 2023.
  • Attendance, participation and implication in the seminars (5 seminars held during the days 9/29/2022, 11/24/2022, 2/16/2023, 5/18/2023 and 6/15/2023 from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.) and tutorials held at the faculty. 
  • 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.

At any moment, the center may have to write a report that clearly explains the lack of progress and negative results of the student. If it happens, it would automatically result in a fail in this module. As a complement to the seminars, the student's self-assessment, which will include the entire internship process based on the learning contract and work plan.

The student must do the total number of the hours in the centre (300h) and attend a minimum of 80% of the seminars and tutorials at the university. In cases where the percentage of attendance is not achieved, the final mark will be “Not evaluable”.

Due to the characteristics of the subject, no recovery of the evaluation activities is foreseen.

Linguistic correction.The internship report must be written in a proper and accurate way.  Learners are expected to display academic skills, whichinclude the abilities of expressing themselves fluently and accurately as well as being able to write academic texts. The report will not beable to be resubmitted to increase the final mark. Likewise, the student must show good general communicative competence, both orally and in writing, and a good command of the language or languages that appear in the teaching guide.

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, without any possibility of re-sitting the report.

It is also essential to show an attitude compatible with the educational profession (active listening, respect, participation, cooperation, empathy, kindness, punctuality, not judging, arguing, proper use of electronic devices (mobile, computer, etc.), etc.). The student have to show that he / she is a responsible and rigorous person in independent work, actively participates in the seminars, shows critical thinking and conducts that favor a friendly and positive environment, democratic and where differences are respected.
