Evaluation Methodology
Continuous assessment based on the eight practical exercises requested throughout the semester. The delivery dates are duly explained in class and the exercises can only be delivered within those dates, unless there is a justification otherwise.The final mark is the weighting of the practical exercises: the first two have the weight of one (each), exercises three, four and five have the weight of two (each) in the final mark; and exercises six, seven and eight have the weight of four (each) in the final mark. A minimum mark of 10 exempts students from sitting the exam.
Students who have attended more than 2/3 of the classes and have completed at least five of the exercises proposed dring the semester are eligible to sit the exam. The final mark is the weighting of the assessment of practical work. The exam and the resit are each worth 100% of the final mark.
The exam can be done remotely using the moodle and Teams platforms.
