Practical work 126
Classification = 70% Practical assignments + 30% Questionnaires, where: Practical assignments = 20% D1 + 30% D2 + 50% D3.
The practical work will be assessed through the documentation submitted up to their due dates established in the course plan, the participation in the presentations and through the developed XML-based application.
The theoretical concepts are evaluated through the individual response to 4 quizzes of 20 minutes each to be done in class.
The minimum required to pass the course is 40% in each of the deliverables and presentations of practical assessment (D1 to D3) and 40% on average of the Quiz #1 to Quiz #4 questionnaires related theoretical subjects.
This course, given its nature, is not eligible for evaluation in a single moment, so the practical work evaluation cannot be replaced by taking an exam.
There are no special works or tests.
Students taking exams under special regimes are expected to previously submit the assignments required for this course at the same time as regular students.
Students may improve the mark in the course's next edition.
