Teaching Methodologies and Assessment Criteria A methodology using exposure of conceptual contents is adopted, which is achieved through real cases. The monitoring of product development within the curricular unit Design Industrial 6 is based on a deductive and problem-solving methodology, with research of relevant information for the realization of the ongoing project, individually or in group. The evaluation will be continuous. The classification considers both the methodological path and the result of all exercises performed individually or in groups. The evaluation is based on the accomplishment of 1 evaluation test (TA) and on the performance evaluation (D) in the resolution of the proposed problems, taking into account the criteria: understanding and commitment in carrying out the proposed work; proposed solutions, consistency and adequacy to the stated assumptions; critical participation in classes and activities performed; attendance. The final classification will be the result of the formula: CF = 0,5TA + 0,5D
Language Portuguese. Tutorial support is available in English.
