EXAM DESCRIPTION

The examination consists of an oral test: an interview on the topics of the syllabus and the lectures given in class.

ASSESSMENT METHODS

During the examination interview, the student's actual acquisition of what he/she has learnt will be verified both on the basis of individual study and by listening to the topics covered during the lectures. The assessment of learning aims to verify knowledge and skills related to the specific field of study. The exam will be graded between very good (28-29) and excellent (30-30 cum laude) if the student demonstrates, through clarity of presentation and conceptual mastery, that he/she has fully understood the topics dealt with; the exam will be graded between good (25-27) and satisfactory (23-24) if the student demonstrates, through the use of correct but not always appropriate language, that he/she has a less than thorough knowledge of the topics dealt with; the exam will be graded sufficient (18-22) if the student demonstrates an approximate preparation.
