Subjects evaluation

These regulations develop the competences granted by the Academic Regulations of the Degree and Master’s studies (Normativa Acadèmica dels Estudis de Grau i Màster) to the School in matters of evaluation, and the specific aspects of the curriculum of the Master's degree in Landscape (MBLandArch). These rules are made for general implementation to students taking this degree and all the offer of subjects except for the Final Master’s Thesis, which is regulated by its own rules.

For every subject, the School establishes 2 regular exam sessions: the continuous evaluation and the final evaluation. The evaluation methodology has to ensure that the result takes account of every evaluation activity within the subject with the following conditions:



Continuous evaluation

When the academic term ends, the teaching staff of the subject will publish the grades get by the students with continuous evaluation. 

As a rule, the continuous evaluation activity (exams) will be performed within the academic schedule of the subject. Any exception of this rule, must be notified by the teaching staff to the Head of studies, so this change can be authorized and widely spread, before the enrolment period. A student enrolled with timetable issues, cannot, for this reason, claim for changes in exam dates. 


The final exam or submission

The teaching plan of subjects establishes a final exam with a global character, so passing the exam means passing the subject.

The student could check the evaluation system of every subject of the Degree in the teaching guide of each one. 

The minimum grade for passing any subject of the Degree is a 5 Passing Grade.

At the end of the exams and submissions period, and in the established dates by the academic calendar of the degree, the teaching staff of the subject will update the grades in the online institutional application and will submit to the School Secretary an Evaluation Report (properly signed) with the marks (in a numerical and descriptive form) of the enrolled students, keeping in mind the standards established in the section "Evaluation" of the "Academic Regulations of the Degree in Architectural Studies and the Master of the UPC".

Students have the right to know the result of any evaluation activity in a maximum term of 2 weeks from the date of the exam and must be guaranteed a minimum term of one week between the publication date and the final exam date. This term will be fixed in the academic calendar of the ETSAB. The academic staff can add the needed remarks in order to advise the students for the final exam, if applicable. The academic staff have to establish and publish, the day of any evaluation activity, the date when qualifications are made public and the dates of the evaluations review period, taking advantage of all available means they have to ease these enquiries of the students.

The faculty will ensure that the publication of the results of the assessments is carried out in accordance with the requirements of the legislation on protection of personal data, paying special attention in not linking the DNI with the students' names and surnames.

The student has the right of a personal revision of the whole exam in the presence of the teacher who has assessed the student.

The School will make public the evaluation results.

The evaluation methodology of a subject:

  • has to foresee that the student may pass the subject from the continuous evaluation. In this case, the student doesn't have the obligation of taking the final evaluation
  • has to guarantee that the final evaluation enables the teacher to make a general valuation of the learning process of the students so that it could substitute, always in order to improve, the grade obtained in the continuous evaluation. The student has the right to take a final assessment exam without having to carry out continuous evaluation.
  • has to guarantee that the final evaluation will be at least the grade obtained in the continuous evaluation

The Master's Academic Committe will ensure the correct functioning of the evaluation processes of the subjects and will make the needed decisions for solving possible doubts and/or conflicts that affect them. In this way, will communicate the breach or infringement of this regulation to the Evaluation Committee of the Teaching staff, which will take the last appropriate measures and will communicate with the affected.
