Exceptional Assessment System for the Essential Care Period

  • In the Exceptional Assessment System for the Essential Care Period, what does the Contribution Component refer to?

    It refers to what we normally know as an "intercycle note" and adds up to a total of 30 points. These 30 points include three partial qualifications: 10 attendance points, 10 compliance points, and 10 performance points.

  • In the Contribution Component, what do the 10 points of partial assistance refer to?

    It consists of the evaluation of the student's effort in participating in the synchronous and asynchronous programmed activities. The responsibility of this qualification will be of the professor of the subject, course or equivalent.

    It should be remembered that the assessment of this partial will consider the particular situation of the student, favoring those who are in a vulnerable situation in this period of essential care.

  • In the Contribution Component, what do the 10 points of partial compliance refer to?

    It will consist of the assessment of the compliance by the students of the activities and tasks that have been requested by the teacher. The responsibility of this qualification will be of the professor of the subject, course or equivalent.

  • In the Contribution Component, what do the 10 points of partial performance refer to?

    It is the assessment through different assessment instruments that the teacher considers relevant according to the nature of the subject and the learning environment. The responsibility of this qualification will be of the professor of the subject, course or equivalent.

  • In the Exceptional Assessment System for the Essential Care Period, what does the Final Component refer to?

    This component is equivalent to the commonly known “final exam”. In the Exceptional Evaluation System for the Essential Care Period, it involves the sum of a total of 20 points that are divided into two qualifications:



    · The partial asynchronous evaluation over 10 points, which will consist of an evaluation instrument that the student can perform during a period of at least 48 hours. The teacher will design this instrument according to the nature of the subject and the technological and material resources available to students in their homes, for this, they will take into consideration the particular circumstances that, due to this period of essential care, may arise. The score will be recorded by the teacher and will be final.


    The partial synchronous evaluation on 10 points, which will be carried out by means of an evaluation instrument that the student must carry out together with their classmates at a time established by the Faculty Council and in the period of time determined by the professor in accordance with the nature of the subject and the assessment instrument that has been designed for this purpose. The evaluation dates will be according to the new academic calendar.

  • Are there exceptions to the Final Component?

    Yes. In those subjects where, due to their nature and organization, it is deemed appropriate, with the prior authorization of the Dean of the Faculty, the score of the Final Component may be assigned with a work, project or asynchronous instrument of 20 points. In this case, the student must have at least 10 points of the 20 points of this Component; otherwise, the student will have to take this evaluation again for the same 20 points.

  • What will be the minimum grades?

    There are two minimum qualifications that the student must achieve:

    • You must have the sum of at least 15 points out of the 30 points of the partial evaluation - known intercycle - and thus be able to perform the Final Component.
    • In the final evaluation, the student must achieve at least 10 points of the 20 points established for the Final Component.
    • The total grade that must be achieved to pass the semester is 30 points.
  • How do substitutes work in the Exceptional Assessment System for the Essential Care Period?

    A supplementary exam will be given, only for the synchronous evaluation (that is, the evaluation programmed by the teacher that the students take all at the same time). This exam will be defined and scored by the teacher.



    In the case that the Final Component consisted of an asynchronous activity (work - project - another instrument) of 20 points, it will be evaluated on the same score and in the same modality.



    The student must, in the summation, reach at least 30 points to pass the semester.

  • How will the Exceptional Assessment System for the Essential Care Period work?

    The Exceptional Evaluation System for the Essential Care Period includes two evaluation components: Contribution Component and Final Component. The Contribution Component will have a 30-point rating scale and the Final Component will have a 20-point rating scale. For the approval of a subject, course or its equivalent, the student must achieve a sum of at least 30 points of the 50 total points.

  • What happens if the 30 points are not reached with the substitute?

    The Exceptional Evaluation System for the Essential Care Period considers the possibility of a remedial period within 30 days of the end of the semester. The student will carry out the final partial remedial synchronous evaluation defined by the teacher.

    In the case that the Final Component consisted of an asynchronous activity of 20 points, it will be evaluated on the same score and in the same modality.



    If with this new remedial grade, the student does not obtain the minimum total score of 30 points required, they will fail the subject, course or its equivalent.
