Assessment methods

The final exam aims at verifying the acquisition of the four linguistic skills (written and oral comprehension, written and oral production) at the CEFR level indicated in the section of the course programme titled “learning outcomes”.

The exam consists of two parts: a 4-hour written test and an oral interview. All students (included Polish native speakers) have to pass the written exam to access the oral one.

The written test aims at assessing the students' writing skills, both active and passive, whereas the interview has the aim of evaluating their capacity of speaking and oral understanding, as well as the theoretical competences conveyed by the metalinguistic part of the course. Both the test and the interview will base on the topics developed during the classes and on the works indicated in the pogramme bibliography.

In case of Polish-born non-attending students, the exam will base on the specific texts indicated in the programme bibliography.

The final mark will be the average of the marks obtained in the written test and in the oral interview (both for the theoretical and the practical part).
