Master in Informatics and Computing Engineering
Markup Languages and Document Processing
Course Unit: Markup Languages and Document Processing
Programmes: MIEIC, 4º
Academic Year: 2017/2018
Hours/Weeks: 3 TP
Teachers: João Correia Lopes
The "Markup Languages and Document Processing" unit assumes as its context the widespread use of markup languages to represent semi-structured information and the existence of standardized tools for their treatment.
On completion of this course, the student should be able to:
Students must have basic skills in markup languages and technologies.
Lectures include theoretical presentation of the course subjects and practical sessions where proposed research topics are discussed with the students and practical coursework is reported.
Physical sciences > Computer science > Informatics
Distributed evaluation without final exam
The practical work is broken down into three components with the delivery of a small scientific paper and a presentation and discussion in a workshop.
The theoretical concepts are evaluated through the individual response to 4 questionnaires.

Practical work 123
Classification = 60% Practical assignments + 40% Questionnaires, where: Practical assignments = 20% D1 + 30% D2 + 50% D3, Questionnaires = (Q1 + Q2 + Q3 + Q4 + Q5 + Q6) / 6
The practical work will be assessed through the documentation submitted up to their due dates established in the course plan, the participation in the presentations and through the developed an application prototype.
The individual questionnaires last for 20 minutes and take place during class.
The minimum required to pass the course is 40% in each of the deliverables and presentations of practical assessment (D1 to D3) and 40% on average of the questionnaires related theoretical subjects. There is no recovery examination.
This course, given its nature, is not eligible for evaluation in a single moment, so the practical work evaluation cannot be replaced by taking an exam.
There are no special works or tests.
The practical work is broken down into three components with the delivery of a small scientific paper and a presentation and discussion.
Students taking exams under special regimes are expected to previously submit the assignments required for this course at the same time as regular students.
Students may improve the mark in the course's next edition.
