External Assessment

In accordance with the legislation in effect, external assessment is based on the Standard Profile of Students leaving Compulsory Schooling, taking into account the need to evaluate and integrate disciplinary knowledge, with special emphasis on the areas of competencies listed in the aforementioned document, and also on Standard Learning, as a common curricular denominator.
