Evaluation Methodology
CCompulsory theoretical-practical classes.
Assessment System: Continuous assessment (AV):
Students are assessed during lectures (T) and Theoretical-practical classes (T/P) qualitatively and quantitatively.
Assessment is based on the following criteria:
Class attendance, minimum attendance of 2/3 of scheduled classes, according to IPT Regulations.
Tr - Coursework undertaken during classes and field trips. Final grade is the average of all coursework items (Tr)- Grade is on a 0-20 scale.
Theoretical test (T) and all coursework undertaken. (Tr). Grade is on a 0-20 scale.

Exam (Ex) will no be allowed to students who did not achieve the minimum average of 9.5 in all coursework (Tr) items.
Exam (Ex) will no be allowed to students if the work carried out (Tr) is delivered the defined deadlines

Continuous assessment grade (AV) is the weighted average (T) (30%) + Tr (70%) as follows:
AV = 0,3 T + 0,7 Tr. A grade higher than 9.5 exempts students from exam.
Theoretical component (T) can be carried out during the tuition period or the exam period.
Exam (Ex): Students qualified to take the exam will receive a final grade (CF) calculated as follows:
CF=0,3 EX + 0.7 Tr
Coursework must be undertaken and submitted in the relevant academic year.
