The evaluation of the lecture will take into account the level of students achievements of the different learning objectives, based on the student work individually or in groups.
For the first evaluation opportunity, the evaluation system will be based on a student continous evaluation and the students grade will be in the interval [0, 10], and the grade can be calculated in the following way:
- 20% Evaluation of the practical assignment submissions that students must submit during the course. The practical assignment submissions to be evaluated will be 4, specifically shell script, makefile, the FAT file system, and system calls. Previously to the start of the course, students will know the exact submission deadlines for each one of those practical assignments, and students will be able to submit their practical assignments through a submission informatic system. Teachers will evaluate these practical assignment submissions. The specific weights on the continous evaluation for each one of the practical assignments will be 5% for the shell script lab, 2% for the makefile lab, 5% for the FAT file system lab, and 8% for the system call lab. Thus, summing a total of 20% over the indicated total. Students will solve these practical assignments during the course in groups of two people.
- 20% Evaluation of the two exercise sessions that will cover all the topics of the course. The exercise session will be done through a computer system in 2 sessions during the classroom timetable, according to the published schedulling. The proposed exercises to solve will be of type fill in the blank, multiple choice, and multiple response.
- 60% Final exam of the course, that will cover all the contents of the course. This final exam will take place according to the university exam calendar.
It is important to note that during the two exercise sessions there will be two different parts:
- One with questions that correspond to the 20% of the continous evaluation.
- Another one with questions using an informatic program game. Students can obtain an extra point on their grades with this activity.
In order to pass the course using the continous evaluation system, a student must obtain a global scoring of 5 or more taking into account all the tests. It is not necessary to pass each part separately, but to have a global grade equal or greater than 5, taking into account all the different tests with the assigned weights.
For those students that do not pass the course in the first opportunity ("convocatoria ordinaria"), students will have a second opportunity ("convocatoria extraordinaria"), and the way to calculate the grade for the second opportunity will be the following. If the student followed the continous evaluation, then the student will obtain the grade that is better for him/her between these two options: taking into account that the final exam counts 100%, or applying the same grade calculation of the continous evaluation of the first opportunity. For those students that did not follow the continous evaluation, the final examlwill count 100% in the second opportunity.
