Teaching methods and learning activities

This subject emphasizes the active participation methodology. Students integrate, as participating members, a developmental group composed by the class and adapted for this purpose. The active methodology is complemented with the expository and interrogative methodology, in order to theoretically systematize and integrate the contents covered.

Assessment is distributed without final exam, considering the following components (and respective weighting in the final classification):

1) Participation in classes (20%);

2) One assignments based on contents of the classes (80%)

(20% + 80% = 100%)

Eligibility for exams

Attendance at classes is required. Students must be present in 75% of the taught classes.

Calculation formula of final grade

Assessment is distributed without final exam, considering the following components (and respective weighting in the final classification):

1) Participation in classes (20%);

2) One assignments based on contents of the classes (80%)

(20% + 80% = 100%)

The assessment of the participation in classes is based on the following criteria:

. Spontaneous participation in open discussions

. Development of communication skills

. Demonstration of reflective ability in class

. Assiduous and punctual presence

Students are required to fill out a self-assessment form for these criteria.

The two components and the final mark are expressed into a scale ranging from 0 to 20.

A minimum of 10 values (0 to 20 scale) on both components are required to get approval at the subject.

Examinations or Special Assignments

Students who have attended the subject in previous years without getting approval can attend the subject again, and in this case the current assessment conditions will be applied. Students who choose to ask dispense from class attendance (only granted if there is previous attendance of at least 75% of the taught classes), the assessment to get approval consists of the following components:

1) The assignment proposed for the current academic year (80%), performed individually;

2) The remaining 20% is relative to the practical component assessed during the year in which students attended classes.

 (80% + 20% = 100%)

The two components and the final mark are expressed into a scale ranging from 0 to 20.

A minimum of 10 values (0 to 20 scale) on both components are required to get approval at the subject.

Special assessment (TE, DA, ...)

Students with special condition who choose not to attend classes must do (individually) the assignment proposed for the current academic year (80%).The remaining 20% is relative to a written assignment over the main contents of the subject, done individually.

(80% + 20% = 100%)

 The two components and the final mark are expressed into a scale ranging from 0 to 20.

A minimum of 10 values (0 to 20 scale) on both components are required to get approval at the subject.

Classification improvement

It is only possible to improve the assignment, which has a weighting of 80% in the final grade.
It is not possible to improve the practical component. (20% of the final grade)

(80% + 20% = 100%)


Mark’s improvement can only be done once, until supplementary assessment of the year following the one in which approval was obtained.


The two components and the final mark are expressed into a scale ranging from 0 to 20.
