Teaching method

Theoretical-practical classes, of two hours per week, where the syllabus is exposed, and exercises are carried out.

Group work max. 5 students, which includes research and preparation of a comparative article on 4 previously chosen articles.

Practical classes in the laboratory, two hours a week, where students perform, in groups of max. 3 students, a set of works/projects with an emphasis on the analysis and design of the system and its implementation in an ESP32 device. Reports on two of these works and respective presentations/discussions.

Evaluation method

Theoretical-practical assessment component (TP), with asynchronous assessment, has a weight of 40% in the final grade and a minimum rating of 9.5 values, with an obligation to have a grade greater than 0 (zero) in all assessment elements. This component has the following evaluation elements:

• Assessment element “group article” (to be delivered in PDF) – this assessment element (TPAG) is worth 50% of the theoretical component;

• Assessment element “individual presentation of the group article” (to be delivered in a 3-minute video format) – this assessment element (TPA) is worth 25% of the theoretical component;

• Assessment element "review of a group''s article" (to be delivered in PDF) – this assessment element (TPR) is worth 25% of the theoretical component.

 

Practical assessment component (P), with Laboratory or Project type assessment, carried out in groups of 3 students (max. and advised), has a weight of 60% in the final grade and consists of 2 projects, (P1) with weight 66% of the practical component and (P2) with a weight of 34%. The practical component has a minimum rating of 9.5, with a mandatory score greater than 0 (zero) in all assessment elements of this component.

The P1 project has the following evaluation elements:

 • Project documentation (D) weighing 30%

• Implementation of part 1 (I1) with a weight of 20%

• Implementation of part 2 (I2) with a weight of 30%

• Workshop presentation (W) weighing 20%

 

Work will be delivered in digital format via the course page on Moodle and Git.

 The classification obtained in the previous year for the theoretical component or for the practical component of assessment is valid, if the grade is higher than 9.5. All assessment components and assessment pieces will be rounded to two decimal places, with the result calculated based on the weighted average according to the weights indicated.

Formulas:

  • TP = TPAGx0,50 + TPAx0,25 + TPAx0,25
  • P = P1x0,66 + P2x0,34
  • P1 = D*0,30+I1*0,20+I2*0,30+W*0,20
  • Final Grade = TPx0,40 + Px0,60

Delivery times:

The group article must be submitted to Moodle by May 21st. The group that does not submit by this date will have the evaluation of this component equal to 0 (zero) values and cannot be submitted to the remaining evaluation elements of the theoretical component. The file of the presentation on the workshop, to be held in the last two theoretical-practical classes must be submitted to Moodle by May 26th. Groups that do not submit by this date will have this component evaluated at 0 (zero) values.
