METHODS OF ASSESSMENT

How is our method of assessment?

Two assessment options are available and you can select the one that best suits you for each course. We adapt to your specific learning needs

> Continuous assessment: this modality implies a progressive approach to learning where you will have to meet the

continuous assessment requirements involving the submission of different activities and an on-site final exam for each course. There is a varied range of activities that your teacher may set out for you: content-based exercises, quizzes that will help you review those unit contents, and the discussion forum where students’ interaction is promoted through a topic of debate.

> Final assessment: in this modality you will have to complete a competence assessment test (PEC) and an on-site final exam.

Additionally, regardless of the assessment modality selected, you have a re-sit examination in case you failed the ordinary examination session.
