Evaluation

The evaluation of the master’s degree will be based on two types of activities that will be as consistent as possible with the previously-mentioned philosophy.



In addition to a set of notes for every subject, at the end of each module the student will receive a compilation of articles, texts and explanatory videos ... that will reinforce the contents presented in the classroom and in the field. The first evaluation activity will consist of designing practical cases for each module, proposed by the module coordinator and using the information provided..

The final evaluation will consist of three activities that will be based on solving real, high performance situations. These activities will take place over two consecutive days in June 2019, and will consist of the following:


1. The first activity will take place in the morning of the first day of evaluation, and will consist of observing a soccer match and then making a full report which identifies the strengths and weaknesses of the two teams, and takes into account the information presented during the master’s program.


2. The second activity will take place in the afternoon of the first day of evaluation, and will consist of building a microcycle based on one of the observed teams, and taking into account all the criteria explained during the master’s program. Within this microcycle, the student must focus on two main tasks. The first consists of designing measures for improving the performance observed in the previous match. The second is to prepare for the match on the following weekend, taking into account that the student will also observe the hypothetical opposing team for 45 minutes.


3. The third activity will take place throughout the entire second evaluation day. The students will be organized into groups of five, and coaching staff roles will be assigned to each person; they will then work together to prepare the pre-match team talk. The organization will provide a 45-minute video of the team to be coached, and a 45-minute video of the theoretical opposing team. Based on the assigned roles, the group must work throughout the morning to prepare a 15-minute presentation to be given in the afternoon before the evaluators.



For all the final evaluation activities, the students will have access to their notes and to all the previous material that they consider appropriate, for example, a previously-developed report model that allows them to solve evaluation activity 1 with a higher degree of precision.
