Assesssment methods and criteria:

Classification Type: Quantitativa (0-20)

Evaluation Methodology:
In this course we value the work within the classroom activities in groups and individually. The driving school is guided by a concern to foster interactions among participants and encourage their involvement and initiative, focusing on the questioning and questioning on matters or issues under consideration. The aim is thus to create conditions for a formative evaluation of activities undertaken with the intention of regulating the development of learning for the purposes and objectives of the discipline point. The final classification of each future educator / teacher will be obtained taking into account all activities, particularly as regards the participation of these same activities and presentations and discussions. During the semester, the assessment provides three tests (90%) without consultation and work (10%). At the time complement, or may be recovered to improve the grade obtained from any of the writing tests.
