Assessment methods

oral examination

The final exam is an oral exam in which the student will be asked to discuss a topic taken from the program. During the interview, questions have to verify the degree of in-depth knowledge of the proposed topic and the other topics of the program, the critical ability to connect different knowledge to each other and the achievement of an organic understanding of the topics covered in class.


The exam will be considered passed if the student demonstrates sufficient knowledge in each topic.


The achievement of an organic vision of the topics addressed in class, combined with their critical
contextualization, the demonstration of possession of an expressive command and specific language will be evaluated with marks of excellence. The final mark of the Integrated Course, of which this teaching is part, is the result of the weighted average between the individual modules.
