The assessment regime implies presence in ¾ of lectures, except for students legally authorized to do not attend lectures (as for instance student-workers)
The final classification in the UC will be obtained through the approval of two evaluation components: i) group work; ii) individual comment:
- The group work consists in the accomplishment of a written work that takes as it starting point a text, to be made available by the teacher in the first classes of the semester, regarding a process of community intervention and/or community development. The groups should consist of 4 or, exceptionally, 3 students. It is intended that the work carried out demonstrates competencies in the field of understanding, interpretation, analysis and critical integration of the themes addressed in the UC by reference to reports and reflections available on concrete processes of community intervention and/or community development. The group work should have an extension between 8 and 10 pages, including the systematic presentation of the interpretation of the text and a reflection on the implications of its contributions to equate community intervention and / or local development, mobilising the theoretical frameworks and concepts seized in the UC. Throughout the semester the elements of support to the structuring and development of group work will be made available by the teacher.
The criteria for evaluating group work are: i) formal rigour; ii) the quality of the argument and the theoretical basis of the analysis; iii) the logical and scientific consistency of the interpretation performed. Although the work can be done during the semester, the delivery of the finished work can be done until the date defined for the individual comment.
- The individual comment without consultation will have a duration of 2.30 hours (plus 30m tolerance) and will be carried out on the date defined by the competent services in the period devoted to the frequencies and exams at the end of the academic semester. The individual commentary, up to a maximum of 5 pages, focuses on a project of community intervention and / or local development (an excerpt / summary available at the moment) and aims to assess the knowledge about the theoretical problems and the concepts addressed throughout the Semester in class and resulting from the students' autonomous work of reading and analyzing the main bibliography of the UC (to be made available by the teacher).
The criteria to be applied for the evaluation of the individual comment are i) the degree of consistency and internal consistency; (Ii) mobilising a critical, personal and integrated approach; Iii) the correctness and relevance of the theoretical contributions mobilised; Iv) formal correction.
For the calculation of the final classification, the group work will be attributed the weight of 40% (the group work is classified on a scale of 0-20 values and the classification converted up to a maximum of 8 values), and to the individual comment the weight Of 60% (individual comments are graded on a scale of 0-20 values and the rating converted to a maximum of 12 values).
In the event of situations that constitute the practice of fraud, it will be carried out in accordance with article 14 of the Evaluation Regulation of students of the FPCEUP where it can be read that "fraud committed in the performance of a test implies the annulment of the same and Communication to the competent statutory body (Pedagogical Council) for possible disciplinary proceedings. Within the framework of the FPCEUP, copying, plagiarism or any other practice from which an illicit benefit to the student's classification is considered to be fraud is understood as a fraud. "
The achievement of a classification of less than 8 values or non-achievement in / of one of the evaluation elements will have as a mechanism of appeal in the scope of the evaluation distributed to:
- completion of new group work (or exceptionally individual work by each of the group members) and their discussion with the teacher;
- completion of a new individual commentary in the period of subsequent examinations.
Students legally authorized to do not attend lectures are required to present a written essay concerning one of the textbooks. This written essay must include an introduction where students are asked to justificate the pertinence of the theme and the linkage with their own learning project. Sucess in this written essay will allow students to develop the individual paper, as the second assessment moment
To improve the final classification obtained, students must accomplish a written examination concerning the whole contents of the subject, as defined above.
