Teaching Methodologies and Assessment Criteria The assessment is continuous and periodic and is done during tutoring classes.
It includes the following components:
(1) Evaluation of clinical competences (CC). (25%)
(2) Realization of 3 optometry consultation in real context (Cons). (50%))
(3) Elaboration of report of clinical case report (ReltCC). (25%)

CEA = 0.25 (CC) + 0.5 Cons + 0.25 (ReltCC)

- In case of CEA> = 8, the student will be given the opportunity to recover by conducting a real patient consultation, in order to obtain CEA = 9.5 values.

The student is exempted from examination if the final grade is higher than 9.5 (scale from 0 to 20).


- Regular attendance at tutorial classes (two unexcused absences allowed)
- Acquisition of at least 75% of the foreseen clinical competences
- At least 1 consultation of optometry in real context, with discussion of the case with the tutor.
- Obtaining a minimum of 9.5 in the classification of the component Clinical Practice Tutorial
