Assessment

Two different assessment systems can apply to students in the degree in Degree in Primary Education, adapted to individual circumstances and training needs:

  • Assessment system 1. Continuous assessment + end-of-course test:
    • 1. 60% of the final course grade is gained through continuous assessment course assignments. Students’ ID will be verified at the end-of-course test.
    • 2. 40% of the course grade will be based on the end-of-course exam, where knowledge and competences acquired through the course will be tested. It will also serve as an ID check.
  • Assessment system 2. Test on acquired competences + end-of-course test:
    • 50% of the final grade will be based on the mark obtained in the Test on acquired competences. This test aims at assessing to what extent students have developed and acquired the competences linked to the course.
    • 50% of the course grade will be based on the end-of-course exam, where knowledge and competences acquired through the course will be tested. It will also serve as an ID check.
