Assessment methods and criteria

The graduation Commission after the presentation and discussion of the thesis by the student will proceed with the assignment of the mark in 110.

The final score is composed of a "basic" score, resulting from the arithmetic average of the marks obtained in the individual exam results expressed on a 110 basis, increased, as a rule, as specified below:

- a maximum of 6 points are assigned by the supervisor on the basis of the achievement of the objectives set by the first three Dublin descriptors: knowledge and understanding, ability to apply the knowledge and information acquired during thesis work and autonomy of judgment in carrying out the work;

- a maximum of 2 points awarded by the Commission on the basis of the ability to discuss and support the theses formulated as well as on the basis of the communication skills and clarity demonstrated by the student in the presentation of the work performed;

- 1 point if the "basic" score is equal to or greater than 100/110;

- 1 point if the master's degree is obtained "in progress" (within 5 years, established as the legal duration of the course of study, starting from the year of enrollment);
