Written exam: multiple choice test.
Oral exam with joint discussion of written test and analysis/re-evaluation of mistakes, if any.
Three questions regarding course material (one of which will be chosen by the student) with interactive discussion and questioning aimed at understanding the student’s ability to put what was learned into practice.
The written test allows to evaluate the level of knowledge of the course material. The oral test allows to refine this evaluation by taking in account the ability to apply the learned material toward the solution of a specific problem, the ability to communicate and the overall engagement.
