Attendance to 75% of classes and compulsory attendance to the assessment components.
FC= 50%TC + 50%TPC FC: Final Classification. Note: final approval requires a minimum score of 50% in theoretical (TC) and 50% in theoretical-practical (TPC); the sum of these two classifications have to be at least 9,5 on a scale of 0 to 20. TC: Theoretical Classification (MT) MT=1st MT (50%) + 2nd MT (505) TPC: Theoretical-Practical Classification (IProj + OP + Iperf) IProj=Report (30%) + Powerpoint (20%) OP=Presentation (20%) + Discussion (10%) IPerf=Participation (20%)
Assessment Components: MT- 2 mini-tests about theoretical classes (individual assignment) IProj- Development of a "Inovation Project" (group assignment) OP- Oral Presentation of the "Inovation Project" (individual and group assignment) IPerf- Individual Performance during classes
The same as for ordinary students. While working students are dispense from classes, there is an obligation to be present at the evaluation moments and to carry out the work described in the assesment components.
