3.1. Assessment tasks (description of tasks, marking system and assessment criteria)
The assessment of students will be summative, with a written test and practical activities that can be assessed during the teaching period. Given the large group context in which the teaching will be carried out, this assessment will take the form of individual and group marks.
Type of tests and their value on the final mark and evaluation criteria for each test:
- Written test (from 0 to 10) at the end of the semester/subject: represents 60% of the final grade. The test may contain: a) objective questions (true/false and/or multiple choice); b) short essay questions; c) essay questions. This final test includes the resolution of cases.
- Evaluation of practical activities: represents 40% of the final grade.
To pass the subject students will need to obtain a total of 5/10 in the written test and a 5/10 in the practical exercises of the course.
With regard to the practical activities assessment section, the student must hand in, in due time, the different documents related to each practical task proposed by the teaching staff (by e-mail, ADD, by hand or as agreed with the teaching staff). This may include:
- Reading on the subject indicated during the classes.
- Case studies, teamwork, etc.
- Practical examples of different types of difficulties.
- The observation and analysis of the communicative behaviour of a child from 0 to 6 years of age.
- A final project of prevention/stimulation with the intervention proposal, activities and resources.
Students who, for whatever reason, have not been able to attend classes systematically or have not completed or carried out the evaluable activities carried out throughout the course, will be graded, in accordance with the evaluation regulations established by the University of Zaragoza, in a final test that will take place in the official calls. This test will consist of the same written test that all students will take, which will represent 60% of the grade, and 5-10 short development and/or essay questions referring to the practical part, which will make it possible to verify the achievement of competences like those acquired by the students who have followed the evaluation of the practicals in continuous attendance and which will represent 40% of the grade. A mark of 5/10 in both sections will be required to pass the course.
