Método de Avaliação

In the Continuous Evaluation System the final grade will be the maximum of: (i) the weighted average of the case-study and final exam grades or (ii) the final exam grade.


o    IPO case-study (15%): students must prepare a written report (hard copy), and a powerpoint presentation. The case-study cannot have more than 6 pages. In appendix, you should include all relevant information to solve the assignment.

The due date is. April 3. Students will present the case-study on same day.  

o    final exam (85%): the minimum grade is 8.5/20.  


Additionally, the students can earn extra points according with their performance on the Start-up Valuation Game. This game is not mandatory and it will take place during the class.

The extra values are the following:

-           1 st position in the game: 1 value

-           2 nd position in the game: 0.5 value

-           3 rd position in the game: 0.25 value  


Students must organize themselves in groups of five participants.


In the Final Evaluation System , the only grading element is the final exam. Students who do not participate in the continuous evaluation system can only present themselves to the final exam in Época de Recurso.  



1.                   The exam of "Época Normal" is only for students in the continuous evaluation system. If the exam grade is higher than the continuous evaluation average, these students may keep the final exam grade.

2.                   Students who are not in the continuous evaluation system (i.e., students who do not submit the case-study and make the paper presentation) count as having zero in those elements in the "Época Normal" exam.

3.                   In "Época de Recurso" students in the continuous evaluation system can keep their continuous evaluation grades, and students in the final evaluation system get their final exam grade.

4.                   Students may collaborate on assignments with other groups. Of course, collaboration does not mean simply copy what the other group has done. Each group must turn in a separate assignment and each group is responsible for the content of the assignment.
