Avaluaciˇ acreditativa dels aprenentatges


Following the general teaching methodology for this subject, continuous and formative assessment will be used. To be eligible to receive a final grade for continuous assessment, students must attend class on a regular basis (at least 75% of face-to-face sessions). Active participation in class forms part of the assessment and will account for 50% of the final grade. The other 50% is awarded for the submission of a written review of one of the major topics covered during the course (of up to 5,000 words in length) and an accompanying presentation in class.
Students who are unable to meet the continuous assessment requirements and can provide supporting documentation to this effect may ask to change to the single assessment option, which comprises the written review of a specific topic covered during the course (50% of the final grade) and an examination containing five open-answer questions on the course content and bibliography (50% of the final grade). The deadline for submission of the written review and the date for the presentation to the rest of the class will be the last face-to-face session in the course calendar.
