Evaluation Methodology
Assessment continues, during the semester, through the completion of four assignments, rated for 20 points each, to be delivered on the dates indicated by the teacher. Failure to deliver the work, on the date defined by the teacher, corresponds to a grade of zero for that work. The final classification is calculated through the arithmetic average of the classifications obtained in the proposed works. Condition for approval: 10 out of 20 values.
Every assessment period takes place through a written test rated at 20 points. Condition for approval: 10 out of 20 values.
