Evaluation Methodology
Continuous assessment: two written tests during the semester, classified from 0 to 10, with the minimum classification restriction of 3 values in both. The syllabus is equally divided by the tests to be performed. The student is exempt from examination, ie, it is approved by continuous assessment if the sum obtained from the written tests, rounded to the units, is equal to or greater than 10.
Assessment by exam (normal time): written test with all the subjects taught in the course (rated from 0 to 20). The student is approved to the course if the final grade, rounded to the units, is equal to or higher than 10.
Other times: written test with all the subjects taught (rated from 0 to 20). The student is approved to the curricular unit if the classification of this test, rounded to the units, is equal or higher to 10 values.
