All of the constituent elements of EU (materials) are in full continuous control. This implies at least two evaluations (one written: case study and one oral: presentation (either individual or group)). This assumes that the ratings are dynamic. As such, a professional was appointed during the last CP to set up an evaluation grid under the supervision of the director of the master's degree.

Concerning the grading: As part of the continuous assessment, the student must be present at the teaching sessions during which two knowledge checks will take place. Attendance and active participation will have an impact on the rating.
