CONTINUOUS EVALUATION IN THE GENERAL CHEMISTRY COURSE OF THE UNIVERSITY REY JUAN CARLOS

Our working group carries out research into new models of evaluation within the Educational Innovation Project “Generic Continuous Evaluation Models” directed by Dr. Sanjiv Prashar. This project forms part of the fourth edition of the Innovation in Education Program of the University Rey Juan Carlos.

This paper will describe our experience in the application of a continuous evaluation system in the general chemistry course given to technical engineering students of the University Rey Juan Carlos. Our aim is always to encourage the students to play a more engaging role in the learning process. With a busy program of activities, tests and exams, the student must adopt an active attitude towards the subject material or run the risk of falling quickly and irreversibly behind. The great majority of our students have chosen the first option.

In order to evaluate the course we have divided the final grade in two parts. 45% will come from the different proposed activities that will take place during the term. These activities are listed below:
Multiple Choice Exams
On-Line Tests
Teamwork Projects
Laboratories
Autonomous Work Project

The remaining 55% will be awarded in accordance with the final exam covering all subject material and which the student will sit on completion of the course.
