The continuous evaluation proccess has three components: (1) the personal presence in at least 2/3 of classes; (2) two theoretical tests with a schedule date and each with a rating higher than 9.5; (3) a report of a working group based on the topic of Spaces of Sport Training Management, or, as an option, an oral test.
