Assessment methods

The class is part of an integrated course. The examination at the end of this class aims to appraise the attainment of the didactic objectives exposed during the lessons according to the program of the integrated course. The student will be questioned for verifying the attainment of the didactic objectives by the responsible of the class using a quiz of 10 questions with multiple answer choices, at the end of the cycle of the lessons. The final score is defined, at the end of the test, and expressed out of 30s (i.e. 18/30 the least – 30/30 cum laude the maximum score). This score will be integrated with those of the other classes of the Integrated Course's scores to establish the final result.
