Evaluation Criteria

Classification Type: Quantitative (0-20)
Evaluation Methodology: The curricular unit teaching methodology is expositive. The assessment of the students' learning in UC Sociology of Companies and Organizations in normal times is made in a system of periodic evaluation, with the realization of individual frequencies and group work. The group work must be original and subjected to UMa's plagiarism control. In the supplementary season it is possible to recover only the note of an individual frequency of the regular season. The group work component can not be recovered in the complementary season. The moments of evaluation of the normal and complementary season are subjected to the criterion of minimum grade (8 values). In the special season the result of the evaluation is equal to the result of the examination of the special season. Students' presence in class is mandatory.
