Written exam and oral exam.
After this course, useful knowledge must be acquired to describe what skills characterize us in the various life stages (eg such as perceptual abilities of a newborn), how do we change (for example, how do we develop language and communication skills?), and what theories have been formulated with respect to why we change (for example, the different theories concerning the cognitive development). The student should have acquired the ability to use this knowledge to understand a real situation that may be proposed or to envisage how to act in it (for example, you're in a Nursery School, with weaned children, which stimuli do you think it is useful to propose and why). Finally, students should use a specialized language.
The written exam includes a majority of multiple choise questions on the manual and on the slides (or resource on aulaweb). The oral exam includes a majority of questions on the text choosen by the students, nevertheless questions on the manual and on the slides are possible.
Oral exam is possible only when written exam is passed.
The vote is the mean of the written and the oral exams.
