Assesssment methods and criteria:

Classification Type: Quantitativa (0-20)

Evaluation Methodology:
Two tests with theoretical questions and practical problems related to the material taught in the discipline. The tests have the objective to assess the theoretical and theoretical-practical knowledge obtained by the students. This way, the student may, during the semester, evaluate his performance and change strategies, if necessary. Weight: 50% each test, with a minimum of 8.00 values. Minimum test average: 9.50 values. The students with grades above 16 will have to make an oral test, otherwise the final grade is 16.
