Modes d'évaluation
des acquis des étudiants
The evaluation will take the form of:
  1. a written team project (40%) and an oral presentation (10%) thereof based on the topics learned during the course, that will evaluat students' ability to identify social and environmental needs and come up with innovative solutions, and to communicate effectively;
  2. a written individual assignment at mid-term that will evaluate students' understandings of key concepts and their ability to apply them to a real case (20%);
  3. a written individual assignment at the end of the term that will evaluate students' understandings of key concepts and their ability to apply them to a real case (20%);
  4. a written individual assignment that will evaluate students' ability to reflect on their practices and learning (10%).
The evaluation is thus mostly continuous, the exam taking the form of an oral presentation and discussion of the group project.
The re-sit consists of:
  • If the evaluation part a is failed (group assignments), a revised version of the group project (on the same topic or a new one) is to be submitted and presented in August. The weights of this part for the final grade remain similar as for the first sit, i.e. respectively 40% (paper) and 10% (presentation) of the final grade.
  • If the student’s average for the evaluation parts b, c, and d (individual assignments) is below 10/20: A new written individual assignment taking the form of the analysis of a case study, based on the concepts learned during the course and making use of the articles that were part of the compulsary readings. The grade obtained for this new assignment will replace the average grade obtained for the evaluation parts b, c, and d for the first sit and will thus count for 50% of the final grade.
