Evaluation:

The model of continuous assessment focuses on the evaluation of each module: evolution (participation and attendance), apprehension and control of transmitted contents (theory and expressive practice) and also the realization of a group work of creative-expressive composition (GW). The final mark corresponds to the weighted average: MME (40%) + CEM (40%) + GW (20%). The final evaluation model includes a theoretical and practical exam about program contents. The end result is the arithmetic average of both. The student is approved with more than 9.4 values.
