Abstract

The authors propose a system for the assessment of Final Year Projects (FYPs) whose educational outputs have been defined previously in terms of competences. For building the proposal, eleven pre-defined competences were ranked and a different weight was assigned to each one. The ranking was made individually by all the authors following a blind two-step process. The first step consisted in ordering the competences by relevance and the second step in grading that relevance for each pair of competences having consecutive positions in the list. As a result, an overall weight was computed for each competence and the final proposal was produced by averaging the individual proposals. In addition, three moments are defined for the assessment of FYPs: the FYP process itself, the written report and the oral presentation. Bearing in mind this, the competences that can be evaluated in each moment are identified and a specific assessment form for each moment is also proposed.
