Teaching methods

The course consists of 1 CFU (frontal and remote teaching).

Assessment methods

Written examination.

The evaluation of the knowledge acquired by the students is based on the administration of a single questionnaire composed of 31 questions for the Integrated Course of Pathological Sciences, with multiple choice (4 choices) and a correct answer only.

The number of specific questions are proportional to the weight (CFU) of the individual disciplines that make up the integrated course.

The total time allowed for the examination is 15 minutes. Students with certified DSA will be granted an additional 5 minutes.

The grade is proportional to the number of correct answers (18 answers = 18 \ 30; 25 answers = 25 \ 30; 31 answers = 30L).
The exam is considered successfully passed from 18 correct answers, corresponding to 18/30 vote.

Teaching tools

The teaching material presented in class will be made available on Insegnamenti On Line.
