Assessment methods

The assessment of the learning takes place through an oral exam carried out in pairs of students, lasting about 15 minutes per student. The exam includes a question on the first part of the program (healthy child) and one on the second part of the program (child with pathology). The interview aims to evaluate the critical skills acquired by the student. The achievement by the student of an organic vision of the topics dealt with in class will be positively evaluated.
