Evaluation Methodology
Considering that the characteristics of this discipline demand an active participation of the student, it will be appropriate that the evaluation of the learning be done in a continuous way.
Thus, for each of the proposed Experimental Projects, developed in class, a technical report will be requested. The final grade for the semester will be the result of the arithmetic average obtained in the set of these reports. Students with a final grade equal to or greater than 9.5 will be exempt from the Exam. The Exam tests should include a written test (60%) and the presentation of individual reports regarding the follow-up of the Experimental Projects developed in practical classes (40%). The minimum passing grade will be 9.5 points, on a scale of 0 to 20.
