Learning assessment

The evaluation of learning consists into three basic moments: the initial evaluation, the ongoing evaluation and the final one. The initial evaluation is aimed to understand the general cultural level and formative background of the students attending the course. The formative or ongoing evaluation is aimed at capturing analytical and continuous information on the learning process of the students. This partial assessment, which measures the knowledge acquired and the skills gained at the end of an activity or a topic of study, can only be carried out for students who follow the course through "active" participation in the lessons with questions and presentations of practical cases. It favours self-assessment by students and provides the teacher with indications to activate any corrections to the teaching action or prepare reinforcement / recovery interventions, consolidation, strengthening.
The exam consists of an oral test. Evaluation criteria and scores are determined according to the following scale:
- less than 18/30 - insufficient level: the candidate does not achieve any of the learning outcomes provided for in the point "knowledge and understanding";
- 18-20/30 - sufficient level: the candidate achieves, in particular, the learning outcomes envisaged in the point "knowledge and understanding";
- 21-23/30 - fully sufficient level: the candidate achieves, in particular, the learning outcomes provided for in the points "knowledge and understanding" and "applied knowledge and understanding";
- 24-26/30 - good level: the candidate achieves, in particular, the learning outcomes provided for in the points "knowledge and understanding"; "applied knowledge and understanding" and "autonomy of judgment";
- 27-29/30 - very good level: the candidate achieves, in particular, the learning outcomes provided for in the points "knowledge and understanding"; "applied knowledge and understanding"; "autonomy of judgment" and "communication skills";
- 30-30 laude - excellent level: the candidate fully achieves the learning outcomes provided for in the points knowledge and understanding; "applied knowledge and understanding"; "autonomy of judgment"; "communication skills" and "learning skills".
The test (questions on the contents of the reference texts) is considered passed if the student demonstrates at least a sufficient level of knowledge with respect to the learning outcomes envisaged as educational objectives of the course.
