The grading system and assessment process is always fully explained and published by the course lecturer at the beginning of each course and every course establishes a system that enable students to be graded on their continuous evolution and development.
Areas that are part of the final grade for each course are:
- Class participation and attendance level.
- Individual and team projects, activities and exercises grades.
- Personnel skills development and acquisition.
The assessment will conclude with the verification of the learning level achieved by the student, providing a numerical grade.
An 80% of attendance would be indispensable to pass the course.
The teaching methodology is based on giving the students a leading role, so that they built their own learning. Promoting reflection, searching for information and problem solving gain great relevance, trying at all times to promote self-learning.
