Even before the enactment of the new university regulatory framework defined in Europe by the “Bologna process”, the University of Cadiz “UCA” (South-Spain) carried out pilot experiences to develop the accomplishment of final reports of several university degrees or/and masters. One of the first conclusions to be drawn from these first written reports was the significant arbitrariness and the disparities that defined the contents and methodology of the new courses called End Degree or/and Master Project (EDMP) included in the modules so appointed. In order to unify criteria and implement these experiences, it was then necessary to design a catalogue of training and tutored activities, to be used as a basis to assess the EDMP´s contents. Once the catalogue was designed, one subject was selected for its implementation. Finally, a rubric document was also applied to analyze the reliability of the evaluation and selection criteria, which was based on aspects such as the public presentation of works or performing a technical research. Results revealed that the original assessment criteria proposed may not be the most appropriate.
