Teaching methodologies (including evaluation)
The teaching and learning process will be guided by the principles of active learning methodology. Ongoing assessment requires the completion of at least one assessment per language skill (listening, reading, speaking, and writing), each worth 25% of the final grade. Students who obtain a grade of 9,5 in each of the language skills and have attended 75% of the contact hours are exempt from the ¿Época Normal¿ exam. Students who have complied with the attendance requirement but have a grade below a 9,5 on the assessment of one or more skills, must retake the exam for the skills which they have not passed. All enrolled students who have not passed the previously mentioned assessments or have not complied with the attendance requirement, will be admitted to the ¿Época de Recurso¿ exam. The procedure for calculation of the final grade will be identical to the that of ¿Época Normal¿ exam.
