The learning activities and methodology for the End of Degree Work are specified in the corresponding university regulation:
Assessment System
The professor in charge of tutoring the student will perform a continuous assessment of student work. The final evaluation will be done by an academic committee, chosen for this purpose, after the oral presentation and defense of the work by the student. This academic committee will assess the work of the student, the results obtained, the presentation of them, and the assessment made by the tutor. Previously, the student must write a report that will be delivered to members of the committee sufficiently in advance. REPORT The report must be written in English. An extension between 50 pages and 100 pages is recommended (interline space 1.15-1.25, font size 11-12 points). A possible structure would be: 1. Introduction: Motivation and goals. 2. Problem statement: state of the art, requirements, restrictions, regulatory framework,... 3. Materials, methods and solution design; 4. Results, validation, discussion,... 5. Project scheduling and budget. 6. Conclusions. 7. References. Additional information may be included as annexes. This structure is merely indicative. It must be the student, with the advice of his tutor, who determines the best way to present the work. You can find more information about how to write the report and style guidelines in the following link: EVALUATION CRITERIA In order to evaluate the work, the committee will take into account the work itself, the quality of the report, the presentation and defense before the committee, and the tutor assessment. The evaluation criteria will be set by the evaluation matrix that has been defined for that purpose. The University uses the Turnitin Feedback Studio program within the Aula Global for the delivery of student work. This program compares the originality of the work delivered by each student with millions of electronic resources and detects those parts of the text that are copied and pasted. If the student has correctly made the appointment and the bibliographic reference of the documents he uses as a source, Turnitin will not mark it as plagiarism.
