The evaluation is based on two elements:
1. Continuous evaluation activities (50% of the final grade)

The format of these activities is defined by each subject. In this subject the following activities will be carried out:
 - Up to 3 points scheduled activities. A total of 3 (1 point per activity) will be made.
 - Up to 2 points the questionnaires in class (they can be test type, short questions, etc). A total of 6 will be made (0.5 points for each questionnaire. The 4 best marks will be computed). DO NOT COMMUNICATE PREVIOUSLY
Absences that occur in these activities can not be recovered at another time unless justified by force majeure. Therefore, this rule can only be excepted in very specific cases (for example, prolonged absences for health or similar reasons).
 Attendance is mandatory and an essential requirement to be evaluated. A non-attendance of more than 20% of the classes will imply not being evaluated.

2. Final exam (50% of the final grade)

Test of 40 questions, according to the pattern of the entrance exam of the Ministry of Justice (4 response options, penalizing errors. Three incorrect questions, one correct answer remains)
It is only valued from a minimum grade of 4 (out of 10). Whoever has a lower grade, suspends the module.

Possibility of reevaluation: whoever has obtained an exam score of less than 4, may be re-submitted to recover it. This recovery affects only the test score, not the qualification of the continuous evaluation, which is maintained.

Possibility of uploading an exam grade: the student who wants to improve his or her exam score can be re-evaluated. The grade obtained in the reevaluation will be your exam grade, whether or not it is higher than the one obtained in the first exam.

It does not accept a single assessment system.
