Teaching methods

Lessons and exercises in classroom. For each topic is reserved a fixed number of hours. The total hours of lessons and exercises are exactly  90, according the planned program

Assessment methods

The exam is written and is divided into two parts:
1.Test of  exercises,
2.Test of theory.
The exercises test comprises a series of exercises of a task,  the same or in different versions for all students. It aims to assess the skills achieved in solving problems in the context of the issues addressed. It is not consented to the use of books, notes, calculators and computer media. Each exercise has a score, for a total of 33 points. Who holds a vote greater than or equal to 12.5 and less than 14.5, he is admitted to a recovery test of exercises, which, if positive carries the vote to 14.5. To be admitted to the test of theory it is necessary to have obtained in the exercises test, including through the recovery test, at least 14.5.The exercise test gives for the final grade  a score equal to the vote of the test exercises divided by 30 and multiplied by 26. The test exercises is valid only for  the appeal.

The theory test comprises the iterative written answer to some questions of theory and to some simple exercise, from an individual card with questions randomly chosen. It aims to test the knowledge of the  program. The theory test gives for the final grade a score from -26 to 9.

The final grade is the sum of points obtained in the  exercises test and of points obtained in the theory test.
