Processo de Avaliação

Continuous evaluation implies: three moments of individual assessment (in class without previous notice; the two best ones will count for a total of 30%); a written exam (70%). These evaluations assume ongoing study, reading of the materials and watching the videos. 

Students who fail the delivery of at least two of the individual evaluations, or that have less than 80% of class attendance should take the final examination (an exam that corresponds to 100% of the final grade).
