Assessment

The assessment consists in an oral test, which is a discussion (presentation plus comprehension, grammar and vocabulary questions) of one of the texts analyzed during the lessons. Assessment criteria for the oral test will be based on: a) ability to articulate and express a thought by making use of adequate language structures; b) adequacy of lexis and grammatical constructions to level A2; c) knowledge of socio-educational lexis.

Disabilità e DSA

Le studentesse e gli studenti che hanno registrato la certificazione di disabilità o la certificazione di DSA presso l'Ufficio Inclusione e diritto allo studio, possono chiedere di utilizzare le mappe concettuali (per parole chiave) durante la prova di esame.

A tal fine, è necessario inviare le mappe, due settimane prima dell’appello di esame, alla o al docente del corso, che ne verificherà la coerenza con le indicazioni delle linee guida di ateneo e potrà chiederne la modifica.
