Evaluation Methodology
The assessment is continuous and consists of:
• Presence, participation, attendance - 5%
• 4 exercises practical - 25%
• 1 written assessment test - 20%
• 1 research paper - 15%
• Final project - 35%

Practice sheets and / or reports must be submitted no later than one week after the exercise in question on the risk of 1 value penalty for each day of delay.

All assessment elements must be presented and delivered by the last class of the contact period.

However, if the student needs more time to complete the final project, the presentation may be postponed to the exam season without prejudice to the assessment. Since the only component that can be evaluated during subsequent seasons is the final project.

Students who do not obtain a final grade equal to or higher than 8/20 are excluded from subsequent seasons.
