The classification of each member will result from the arithmetic average of the scores assigned, on a scale of 0 to 20 points, for each of the two assessment factors I) and II).

 

3) Final classification will be scored by using the following formula,  on a scale of 0 to 20 points: AC = (CA*X+CC+CP)/3.

Being:

AC = Curricular analysis

CA = Academic curriculum

CC = Scientific curriculum

CP = Professional curriculum

X's  weighting factor assumes one of the following: 

X = 1.3 for applicants with a bachelor degree in the area of Visual Arts.

X = 1.0 for applicants with a bachelor degree in all other areas considered suitable

 

4) If it is stated the need to perform an individual assessment (EI), the final classification's formula is adapted as follows: CF = (AC+EI)/2

Being:

CF = Final classification

AC = Curricular analysis (Academic+scientific+professional curricula)

EI = Individual assessment

 

5. Scores resulting from the calculation of averages shall be expressed to the hundredths, by rounding, in each selection method and also in the final classification, by default or by excess, according to whether the value of the thousandths is less than or equal to five.
