      Les modalités d’évaluation en Mastère 1

      Les enseignements, quelle que soit l’option choisie, sont évalués de deux manières :

      • Par un contrôle continu tout au long de l’année qui évalue l’assiduité en cours, l’implication des étudiants et la qualité de leurs devoirs.
      • Par un examen final à chaque fin de module. Plusieurs sessions d’examens sont organisées dans l’année scolaire. Le planning des examens est envoyé aux étudiants 3 semaines avant le début des examens en précisant la nature des épreuves (écrites ou orales). Exemples d’examens écrits : études de cas, consultations, dossiers à rendre, sujets de synthèse, QCM…

      Les matières ne se compensent pas entre elles, chaque module étant indépendant des autres.

      Une session de rattrapage est proposée aux étudiants qui ne valideraient pas une matière en cumulant les notes de contrôle continu et d’examen.
