Evaluation Criteria

Classification Type: Quantitative (0-20)
Evaluation Model: B
Evaluation Methodology: The curricular unit includes 32h of theoretical classes, 16h of theoretical-practical classes and 32h of practical classes. In the former, the teacher's teaching is accompanied by multimedia projection; during these classes, the teacher is always open to discussions with the students. In the TP lessons, the students are invited to search and explore scientific articles in the domain of the curricular unit. In the P (laboratory) classes the students perform a short lab project; students are asked to design the protocol before performing the experiments; all the experimental studies are conducted in groups. The evaluation of UC consists of: a) 1 written test (50% weight); b) 1 oral presentation of a scientific article (20% weight); c) 1 scientific report (written in the form of a scientific paper) of the experimental work done (30% weight). Only the written test may be repeated in the appeal period. A minimum of 9.5 values is required in each element of evaluation to succeed in the course.
