The method of assessment relating to the monographic course will be written. It will be a paper, consisting of both open questions relating to the content of the course and analysis of examples, sentences, or small dialogues relating to the topics indicated in the program. Not only formal and content correctness will be assessed, but also the mastery of the methodological tools used (references to the study material). The student must also demonstrate that they have reached the expected level of linguistic competence at the exit for the reference year, as indicated in the Vademecum.

Disability and Specific Learning Disorders (SLD)

Students who have registered their disability certification or SLD certification with the Inclusion and Right to Study Office can request to use conceptual maps (for keywords) during exams.

To this end, it is necessary to send the maps, two weeks before the exam date, to the course instructor, who will verify their compliance with the university guidelines and may request modifications.
