Learning assessment

The assessment of the expected learning results will be carried out in different ways and at different times.
Specifically, in itinere, the learning results will be assessed by means of formative checks based on: structured tests, aimed at ascertaining the acquisition of knowledge; the use of business cases, aimed at ascertaining the acquisition of skills. To this end, depending on the number of participants, working groups are organised on specific projects.

At the end of the course, the expected learning results will be assessed by means of a written test. The test consists of multiple-choice questions, two open-ended questions and exercises. If the student achieves a score of more than 18/30, he/she may take an optional oral test with an additional maximum score of 3 points.

The assessment criteria and marks are determined according to the following scale:
- less than 18/30 - insufficient level: the candidate does not achieve any of the learning outcomes set out under 'knowledge and understanding';
- 18-20/30 - sufficient level: the candidate achieves, in particular, the learning outcomes under the heading 'knowledge and understanding';
- 21-23/30 - fully sufficient: the candidate achieves, in particular, the learning outcomes specified under the headings 'knowledge and understanding' and 'applied knowledge and understanding';
- 24-26/30 - good level: the candidate achieves, in particular, the learning outcomes stipulated at the points 'knowledge and understanding', 'applied knowledge and understanding' and 'independent judgement';
- 27-29/30 - very good: the candidate achieves, in particular, the learning outcomes stipulated at the points 'knowledge and understanding'; 'applied knowledge and understanding'; 'independent judgement' and 'communication skills';
- 30-30 with distinction - excellent level: the candidate fully achieves the learning outcomes expected at the points 'knowledge and understanding'; 'applied knowledge and understanding'; 'independent judgement'; 'communication skills' and 'ability to learn'.
