Assessment methods and criteria

The exam is written and consists of submitting students to a multiple choice test and two open questions.
Knowledge and understanding will be assessed with 10 multiple choice questions, aimed at verifying effective knowledge of the fundamental concepts relating to the five modules.
The ability to apply knowledge and autonomy of judgment will be ascertained by inviting the student to discuss the general notions in the light of two hypothetical cases.
The ability to communicate will be ascertained by evaluating the student's ability to use the appropriate technical terminology and correctly apply particular rules or principles.
Learning skills will be assessed through an overall assessment of the answers given to the test questions.
In the event that the health emergency continues and depending on its evolution, the exam may take place in presence, in mixed mode (i.e. in presence, but with the possibility of support even remotely for students who request it from the Teacher), or only online for everyone (at a distance). The chosen method will be promptly notified on the Esse3 system in advance of the exam.
