Evaluation:

The Project Management in Dance has a component of theoretical foundation that aims to provide knowledge to the students to develop projects in the field of dance, in any of its dimensions. The theoretical and practical component takes place in the computer room and focuses on the use of MSProject for various tasks, including planning and control of projects.
The model of continuous evaluation consists of a written test which has a weighting of 0.4 of the final grade. The remaining 0.6 relate to the preparation of a project in the field dancing with three assessment moments (pre-project, oral presentation to the class and final delivery of the written project). The student will have approval on continuous assessment if the arithmetic average of the different evaluations referred to is equal to or greater than 9.5.
The model of final evaluation will consist of a written proof about the whole program subject. The student is approved provided it has a minimum score of 9.5.
