Assesssment methods and criteria:

Classification Type: Quantitativa (0-20)

Evaluation Methodology:
Considering the student as the center of the teaching/learning process, and the theoretical typology of Curricular Unit, it is recommended an expository methodology that allows student-teacher interaction, in the sense that students will be encouraged to participate actively and fostering critical capacity development. The lecture sessions will be complemented and illustrated with the use of audiovisual means, namely of videoprojections. The evaluation corresponds to the model adopted by UMa - Model A, whose evaluation elements will be two written frequencies, each lasting one hour. The final classification of the Curricular Unit will result from a 50% weighting of the classification of the grades obtained in each of the elements, with a minimum grade for approval in each element of 9,5 values. They are recoverable at the time of appeal and special according to the status of the student. The improvement of the grade to the CU will be based on the entire subject matter.
