The evaluation will be obtained through four elements, a mini-test in group, the realization of a group report, a presentation of a paper in group, answers to 2 quizzes (each 5%) in group. The final classification results from the following formula: 0.3 * Mini-test1 + 0.3 * report + 0.3 * presentation + 0.1 * responses to Quizzes.
Approval: minimum classification of 9.5 values (scale of 20) in the final classification. In case students do not obtain approval by continuous assessment, they can go to the final exam. In this case the final classification will be: 0.7 * exam grade + 0.3 * report. Approval: minimum classification of 9.5 values (scale of 20) in the final classification.
* Changes to the assessment *
