THE COURSE CONSISTS OF 30 CLASS HOURS (5 ECTS) WHICH INCLUDE BOTH THEORETICAL METHODS AND CASE STUDIES.
Verification of learning
THE FINAL EXAM CONSISTS OF A WRITTEN AND AN ORAL EXAM. BOTH PARTS WILL BE EVALUATED ON A NUMERICAL SCALE BETWEEN 1 AND 30. TO ACCESS THE ORAL PART A MINIMUM OF 18/30 IS REQUIRED FOR THE WRITTEN PART. DURING THE WRITTEN TEST (WHICH LAST ABOUT 2H) THE STUDENT WILL RECEIVE AN EXAM PAPER AND WILL BE ASKED TO ANSWER ABOUT 8 QUESTIONS (EACH WITH SCORES RANGING FROM 1 POINT TO 7 POINTS) ON THE ENTIRE PROGRAM OF THE COURSE, USING A DATASET PROVIDED DURING THE EXAM. THE ORAL EXAM (LASTING ABOUT 15 MINUTES) FOCUSES ON THE GENERAL KNOWLEDGE OF THE TOPICS TREATED DURING THE COURSE, THE ABILITY TO PRODUCE A CORRECT STATISTICAL ANALYSIS, THE ABILITY TO CORRECTLY COMMUNICATE THE RESULTS. THE FINAL MARK WILL REFLECT THE EFFECTIVINESS OF THE TOOLS EMPLOYED, OF THE THOROUGHNESS AND LUCIDITY OF ANSWERS. THE FINAL MARK, ON A SCALE BETWEEN 1 AND 30 WITH LAUDE, WILL CONSIDER BOTH THE PERFORMANCE ON THE WRITTEN AND ORAL PART.
