Evaluation Methodology
The assessment of the curricular unit includes two modalities.
1- Continuous assessment.
Frequency to be carried out during the continuous/intermediate periodic assessment (10 points)
Carrying out work and its presentation and discussion in class on an assigned topic, linked to the syllabus of the curricular unit (10 values).
The student must obtain a grade equal to or greater than 7 in each of the components to obtain approval for the curricular unit. By opting for continuous assessment and not passing through attendance, the student will only be able to take one assessment period, a regular exam or an appeal exam.
2- Assessment by exam.
The student will be subject to a Final Exam, including a theoretical component and a theoretical-practical component (20 values)
The student must obtain a grade equal to or greater than 7 values in each of the components to obtain approval for the curricular unit.

The student must have a minimum of 9.5 for approval.
