Calculation formula of final grade

Upon delivery of each project the students will be placed in alphabetical scale from A to F, which make up a split between the articulation of concepts (theoretical foundation) and the materialization of the project (technical field capacity). At the end of each project evaluations will be published so that the student is aware of their classification throughout the semester. In addition to projects developed to assess teacher attendance, curiosity in science and technology, the use of technical language and concepts appropriate, the participation and involvement of students in school activities beyond the classroom context. Projects that have not been properly monitored during the course of the semester will not be reason for evaluation.
