The course has a practical component which results from the execution of projects, to be delivered up to the due dates established in the course plan.
The students are admitted to the final exam if they achieve 50% in each component of the project work. Success in the course requires 40% in each intermediate written test.
The final grade is computed using the formula: GRADE= 60% Projects + 40% Tests.
The Projects component is the result of the practical evaluation and can be obtained:
The project and its workplan must be validated by the course instructors.
None. All students have to complete the projects and present them as scheduled.
Distributed evaluation, performed during the semester, is required of all students, regardless of their enrollment status.
Improving the classification requires a new enrollment in the course, taking the course projects and tests again.
