    EXAMS

    EXAM DESCRIPTION

    Written exam consisting of exercises on the topics in the course program.

    Students with DSA certification («specific learning disabilities»), disability or other special educational needs are advised to contact the teacher at the beginning of the course to establish teaching and examination methods that, in compliance with the teaching objectives, take account of individual learning arrangements and provide appropriate compensatory tools.

    ASSESSMENT METHODS

    The exams evaluates the ability to solve geometric problems by applying the techniques learnt during the course. The evaluation takes into account the quality and correctedness of the exposition and the precision of the reasonement employed.
