Assessment methods conform to academic regulations and procedures. More details on the methods employed in each teaching unit are available in their description sheet, under the heading ‘Assessment methods for student learning’.
Different methods are in place in order to evaluate the knowledge and skills acquired in the course of the learning period; these are adapted to the following types of performance: continuous assessment, especially for practical exercises; assessment of individual work (reading, consultation of databases and bibliographical references, monograph and report writing); overall assessment (written and/or oral) during examination sessions; assessment of public presentations.
Whatever the teaching language of an activity, students may choose to present the corresponding assessment in English or in French. Exceptions are the Thesis Tutorial, philosophy courses and activities specific to the teaching focus.
