The subject evaluation will be made taking into account the following criteria:
1.-Course feedback (20%): The active participation of the students in the subject will be highly considered. The students¿ interventions will be counted in the forums / blogs of the subject, apart from resolution of objective tests.
2.- Development of periodic assignments (30%): This type of tasks seeks to measure the process of knowledge acquisition in the subject, taking into account the point of departure of each student, and their progress.
3.- Case study developments (50%): The application of quantitative techniques to cases of real companies allows to show the real knowledge of the subject by the student. Each student will be asked to solve at least one practical case and will count for their realization of the teaching assistant's help. The resolution of these practical cases are mandatory for passing of the subject.
