A first grade (W) will be given for a final written examination covering both theory and practice. Another grade (P) will be given for a project. Each student must search for a paper about "Software Metrics" and present a talk about it in the seminaries. This talk and a writen short abstract will receive a grade A. The final result will be the average of these three marks:
F = [A+P+W] / 3
