- Continuous assessment: two tests (classified from 0 to 20 points each) during the semester. The student is exempted from exam, that is, the student is approved by continuous assessment if the average obtained from the classification of written frequencies, rounded to the nearest units, is equal to or greater than 10 values.
- Assessment by exam: written test (exam) with all the subjects taught in the course (rated from 0 to 20), with a weight of 100%. The student is approved to the course unit if the final classification, rounded to the units, is equal to or higher than 10 values.
