Assessment methods and criteria

The assessment of the learning is carried out through a final examination, to verify how much the student has learned in relation to the contents of all three modules of the integrated course.
Upon online registration and completion of the OPIS, the student must:
a) prepare a 3-page report on a chemical risk present in a defined working context (to be delivered at least 7 working days before the date of the appeal to the teachers of the integrated course);
b) take an oral exam (in presence or on Teams depending on the pandemic situation) that involves the discussion of the report and questions on topics covered in class.
The student will have to demonstrate that he has understood, and be able to apply, the concepts
of every subject dealt with.
The overall assessment, in thirtieth, is communicated immediately to the student.
Students with DSA/BSE must contact the University Reception and Inclusion Centre in advance (
