Learning assessment

The objective of the verification procedure is to quantify, for each student, the level of achievement of the previously indicated training objectives. The verification procedure consists of an individual or group project (50% of the vote) and an oral examination (50% of the vote). For the positive outcome of the evaluation, the positive outcomes of both the tests (project and oral exam) are necessary. The oral exam verifies the level of theoretical knowledge and the ability to discuss about the topic. The project evaluates the ability to write a C or C ++ program even through an appropriate organization. The project verifies the ability to face and solve a problem in full and writing a report about the analysis process.
