Teaching Methodologies and Assessment Criteria The students are graded using two theoretical tests and two practical tests that are done individually, that are focused on the topics presented so far in the course. By doing this, we are evaluating the student's progress in terms of the acquisition of competences.
The theoretical tests are used to evaluate the knowledge acquisition at a more abstract level while the practical tests are used to evaluate the learning progress on problem resolution using the acquired knowledge.
The students can improve the grades they obtained at the end of the semester by doing a written exam, and keeping the best grade. But to do this they are required to have a minimum grade on the evaluation done during the semester.
Language Portuguese. Tutorial support is available in English.
