Assessment methods
The expected learning outcomes are tested with an exam consisting of three parts: a written theoretical exam (60%) and a written and oral communicative exam (40%).

The written theoretical exam (60%) consists of a textual analysis and shorts questions about the contents of the course. The test aims at assessing the understanding of theoretical contents, the ability to text analysis and the ability to explain linguistic topics in academic writing style. Duration: 90 minutes.

The communicative written test consists of a grammar test (gap-filling cloze and translation) and a composition. Duration: 90 minutes.

The oral test assesses the oral communicative competence (C1 level). Duration: 15 minutes: 5 minutes for interaction; 5 minutes for the oral presentation of a linguistic, cultural or current topic and 5 minutes about a narrative fiction.

In order to get an overall pass in Spanish Language 3 (LT0071) or Hispano-American Language 3 (LT007Q) courses, students are required to get a pass on all three parts. Passing the written theoretical test allows the student to maintain the partial mark for the entire academic year. Failure in the written theoretical exam invalidates the communicative test and the student will be required to repeat everything in the next exam session.
