Assesssment methods and criteria:

Classification Type: Quantitativa (0-20)

Evaluation Methodology:
Mini-Tests: aim to assess theoretical knowledge, practical and theoretical-practical. This way the student can, throughout the semester, evaluate their performance and change strategies if necessary. ? (5,0% + 5,0% = 10,0%) Work: The work is assessed per report, presentation or discussion. Allows students to develop writing skills, presentation of results, develop oral communication skills and teamwork. ? (30,0%) Frequencies/Exams: aim to evaluate the knowledge acquired by students, including the ability to integrate different content in a holistic way. ? (60,0%) In the Resort Season and Special Season, the exam is worth 60% of the final evaluation, ie only the frequency is recoverable. The parts of the evaluation corresponding to the work and the mini-tests are not recoverable.
