Teaching Methodologies and Assessment Criteria FREQUENCY-BASED COURSE ASSESSMENT:
The assessment for this course is divided as follows:
• 67% Module I
• 33% Module II
Module I assessment consists of two main components:
• 80% Theoretical Component (1st Frequency (written exame))
• 20% Laboratory Component (Pre-lab preparation (20%)+Laboratory performance (20%)+Laboratory notebook (20%)+Written test (40%) (Note: This test is conducted simultaneously with the theoretical test.)
Module II assessment also consists of two main components:
• 80% Theoretical Component (2nd Frequency (written exam))
• 20% Theoretical/Practical Component (Preparatory work (20%)+Performance (40%)+Written test (40%) (Note: This test is conducted simultaneously with the theoretical test.)
The Classification during the Exam period (CE) follows the same weighting as in the Frequency-based assessment:
• 67% Module I
• 33% Module II
Language Portuguese. Tutorial support is available in English.
