Assessment methods and criteria

Oral examination. In case of the persistence of the health emergency, the exams will be conducted remotely, as follows: remote oral questions, through the Teams platform (guide http://selma.unipr.it/).
Students with SLD / BSE must first contact Le Eli-che: support for students with disabilities, D.S.A., B.E.S. (https://sea.unipr.it/it/servizi/le-eli-che-supporto-studenti-con-disabilita-dsa-bes)

Students should be able to demonstrate how to manage risk in biomedical lab and how to use prevention and protection systems with special attention to personal protection equipment (PPE) and fume cupboard for chemicals.
Finally, they must demonstrate the ability to read and understand chemical risk communication according to EU legislation REACH and CLP.
