Teaching Methodologies and Assessment Criteria The classification during the period of teaching and learning (CEA) is determined by CEA = 1/2 T + 1/2 P, where T is the classification obtained in a theoretical test and P the classification obtained in the laboratory practices. The P is determined by P = 1/2TRG + 1/2PORT, where TRG corresponds to the classification obtained in the group work and PORT to the classification obtained in the individual portfolio.

The student is exempt from examination if P> = 7 ??and CEA> = 9.5.

Mandatory completion of a theoretical test (T) and a group work (P);

The student approves by examination if the final classification (CF), given by the expression; CF = 1 / 2AOI + 1 / 2E, is equal to or higher than 9.5 values. The E corresponds to the classification of the Exame and AOI to the classification of the Individual Oral Presentation of at least one practical case. AOI will be evaluated in a Q & A presentation in the content, critical thinking, communication and collaboration strands
Language Portuguese. Tutorial support is available in English.
