    Assessment

    Expected learning outcomes will be evaluated through two written tests and an eventual oral interview. Tests will be carried out with the involvement of all members of the examination committee.
    The first mid-term test consists of three open-ended questions, will take place at the end of the second part of the program, over the topics discussed. The second intermediate test will have the same structure as the first but will take place at the end of the lessons on the rest of the program.
    The outcomes will be returned within 15 days. Anyone who will not pass the intermediate tests or will not satisfied with the obtained assessment, can access to oral interview.

    The expected learning results will be evaluated by means of an oral exam, based on three questions or more. The evaluation criteria and the scale of marks are as follows:

    • less than 18/30: competence level insufficient. The student doesn’t reach the learning results described in “knowledge and understanding”.
    • 18-20: competence level sufficient. In particular, the student attains the learning results described in “knowledge and understanding”.
    • 21-23: competence level satisfactory. In particular, the student attains the learning results described in “knowledge and understanding” and in “applied knowledge and understanding”.
    • 24-26: competence level good. In particular, the student attains the learning results described in “knowledge and understanding”, “applied knowledge and understanding” and “making judgments”.
    • 27-29: competence level very good. In particular, the student attains the learning results described in “knowledge and understanding”, “applied knowledge and understanding”, “making judgments” and “communication skills”.
    • 30-30 with honours: competence level excellent. The student fully attains the learning results described in “knowledge and understanding”, “applied knowledge and understanding”, “making judgments” and “learning skills”.
