    EXAM DESCRIPTION

    Written exam plus oral discussion.

    Students with learning disorders ("disturbi specifici di apprendimento", DSA) will be allowed to use specific modalities and supports that will be determined on a case-by-case basis in agreement with the delegate of the Engineering courses in the Committee for the Inclusion of Students with Disabilities.

    ASSESSMENT METHODS

    The purpose of the written exam is to verify the ability of the student to face problems through the use of probability and statistics and the oral exam has the purpose to verify both the knowledge level and the ability to exploit the theoretical instruments of probability and statistics.
