Assessment methods

Written exam and further oral exam for the grade between 18 and 23.

The written test will focus on quiz test (1 correct answer among 4 proposals) or on true / false questionnaires. The score will include 1 point for each correct answer, 0 points for the answer not given and -0.5 for each incorrect answer. If the score is included between 18 and 23, the student must necessarily submit to the oral exam; from the score of 23.5 and above the student will be able to directly verbalize the grade obtained or he can still request an oral exam to raise the written mark.
Practical evaluation. Practical exercises will provide an assessment that will result in a grade between -2pt and +2pt (-2, -1, 0, +1, +2), which will be added to the overall evaluation of the exam after the writing and the possible oral. The methods of examination will be explained in detail even during the first lesson of the course and will be published on Virtuale.
