3. Assessment (1st and 2nd call)
3.1. Assessment tasks (description of tasks, marking system and assessment criteria)
The student must demonstrate that she has achieved the expected learning outcomes by ...
The evaluation of the subject that will be global.
The overall grade of the student will be obtained as the sum of the weighted grades of the evaluation activities that are exposed below, having to obtain to pass the subject a minimum of 50% of the maximum value of this global grade, with the condition of having passed the Laboratory practices.
Evaluation activities during the teaching period:
3.1 Laboratory Practices (10%)
The laboratory practices will be evaluated in the laboratory sessions themselves. The grade for this activity will be from 0 to 10 points and will represent 10% of the overall grade. The student who does not attend a session, except for just cause, at the scheduled time will have a grade of 0 in said session. In order to pass the course, it is necessary to obtain a minimum score of 5 points out of 10, having attended all the practical sessions.
3.2 Tutored Work (70%)
In order to encourage the continuous work of the student, during the first weeks of the course the professor of the subject will propose the completion of a supervised work that will account for 70% of the overall mark.
Evaluation activities on the dates provided by the center for the Official Calls:
3.3 Theoretical written test (20% in case of approved practices, 30% in case of suspended practices).
This test will be carried out in order to verify the degree of assimilation of the theoretical contents of the subject.
The assessment of this theoretical written test will be 20% for those students who, during the teaching period, have obtained an approved practices. In this situation, in order to pass the course, an aggregate percentage of the evaluation of the supervised work and of the evaluation of the theoretical written test must be obtained at least 40% of the maximum value of the student's global qualification, having scored in both.
The assessment of this theoretical written test will be 30% for those students who have to take the substitute evaluation of laboratory practices. In this situation, in order to pass the course, an aggregate percentage of the evaluation of the supervised work and of the evaluation of the theoretical written test must be obtained at least 50% of the maximum value of the student's global qualification, having scored in both.
3.4 Substitute evaluation of laboratory practices.
Any student who during the teaching period has not obtained a pass in practicals will take the substitute evaluation of the laboratory practices, which will consist of a practical exam to be carried out in the laboratory of the subject whose qualification will be suitable or not.
3.5 Substitute evaluation of tutored work.
Those students who have not carried out the supervised work during the teaching period will have a substitute written test for the supervised work in which the degree of assimilation of the practical application of the contents of the subject will be checked. This activity will have an assessment of 70% of the maximum value of the student's global grade.
4. Methodology, learning tasks, syllabus and resources
4.1. Methodological overview
The learning process that has been designed for this subject is based on the continued student work and focuses on the theoretical aspects to understand, analyze and apply this knowledge to solving real problems.
For the development of the subject, on the one hand, theoretical sessions will be held by the whole group, in which the theoretical foundations of the subject will be presented in the form of lectures and supplemented by solving type-problem.
On the other hand, there will be sessions of laboratory, in which each student will work as a member of a small group of students, putting into practice the knowledge acquired in the theoretical sessions.
In parallel, during the teaching period of the semester, the student will perform an assessment under the tutelage of the professor.
4.2. Learning tasks
The course includes the following learning tasks:
- Lectures (45 hours). Sessions of exhibition and explanation of contents, along with problems and cases of the practical application of such contents. The student's participation will be encouraged through questions and brief discussions.
- Laboratory practices (15 hours). The student will have a practice script, previously provided at the beginning of the session of practices, which will be accompanied by explanations and details required for the accomplishment of the practices, in the own session of laboratory, and given by the corresponding Professor.
- Tutored assessment (18 hours). During the first weeks of the course, the professor will pose a tutored assessment of the subject, which applies in a practical way the contents of the subject developed in the different topics of the course students.
- Autonomous work and study (68 hours), spread over the 15-week of the semester. The continued working of the student will be promoted by the various learning activities evenly distributed throughout the semester.
- Evaluation Test (4 hours). The Evaluation tests as well as having a rating function, are also a learning tool for the student to check the degree of understanding and assimilation of knowledge and skills achieved. The evaluation of the subject will be held in a single session and will consist of two tests. In the first test, lasting half an hour, the degree of assimilation of the theoretical contents of the subject will be checked. In the second test, lasting 3 hours and a half, the degree of assimilation of the practical application of the contents of the subject will be checked.
- Tutoring. The direct attention to the student, identification of learning disabilities, guidance on the subject and help to the raised exercises and works.
The course will address the following learning tasks:
- Distribution of electric power.
- Switchgear and electrical protection in low voltage.
