Teaching Methodologies and Assessment Criteria
The teaching-learning methodology provides for the acquisition of knowledge through the study centered on the project. Thus, the teaching methodology is active and cooperative, encouraging reflection and focusing on student the application of concepts, the problem solving and the research. In theoretical and theoretical-practical lessons the teacher introduces the syllabus as that the project execution so requires and allows. In practical lessons students develop individually, with teacher supervision, the project of collection to final prototypes. In assessing the progress of the execution of the collection are presented and discussed, to the class, the work status.
45% ? Patterning;
50% ? Cutting and sewing of final garments.
5% ? Other components: Interest, performance and evolution of the student, technical rigor and cleaning and organizing portfolio.
The frequency criterion: a minimum of 6 values. Approval criterion: a rating equal to or greater than 10 values.
