Teaching method

Theoretical sessions with datashow. Practical laboratorial sessions.

Evaluation method

- Continuous assessment with 4 elements of evaluation:

Theoretical-Practical Evaluation: 2 Tests (each one 35% to the final grade). Weighted average of the 2 elements of evaluation must be equal or higher than 9.5 values (scale of 20).

Laboratorial Evaluation: Assiduity of the practical laboratorial sessions; elaboration and discussion of one practical report (20% to the final grade); 1 Mini-Test (the presence in the classes of Module is mandatory to have access to the mini-test) (10% to the final grade).

Frequency is obtained with the presence in 2/3 of practical classes.

Final rating: (0.70*Theoretical-Practical Evaluation) + (0.30*Laboratorial Evaluation). Approval is obtained with a minimum score of 9.5 (scale of 20).

- Students without approval on the continuous assessment examination can proceed to the final exam, with the classification being defined by: 0.70 *Exam + 0.30*Classification of the laboratorial evaluation. Approval with a minimum score of 9.5 (scale of 20).

- Improvement of the classification requires a registration in the schedule examination period. The classification of the laboratorial evaluation cannot be improved and follows in the next year.
