Teaching methods

Frontal lessons.

Three self-assessment tests will be organised during term time. Students can perform them by using books and notes. Such tests do not involve any evaluation.

Assessment methods

Written test with six open answering questions regarding many themes relevant to the ones listed in Course contents. Maximum time: 90 minutes.

Oral test (only one question regarding a theme relevant to the ones listed in Course contents) on student's request: in that case the final vote can differ at most of three units (more or less) compared to the written test evaluation.
Even students who achieve an evaluation correspondig to 16/30 or 17/30 in the written test may ask to take the oral test, but in that case the final evaluation cannot exceed 18/30.

Students accepting the result of the written test can verbalise it in the teacher's office hours within six months after taking the test. No email verbalisation is contemplated in any case.

Students who do have not signed up in the dedicated list within its expiration date (seven days before) cannot absolutely take the test. Students having technical or burocratic problems in signing up must contact the teacher before the expiration date.

Teaching tools

Textbooks and slides illustrated during the lessons.
