Verification of learning
ACHIEVEMENT OF THE OBJECTIVES OF THE TEACHING IS CERTIFIED BY EVALUATION EXAM. THE GRADES ARE ON A SCALE OF 30. THE EXAM CONSISTS OF A WRITTEN TEST AND AN ORAL TEST.

THE WRITTEN TEST IS PRELIMINARY TO THE ORAL TEST AND CONSISTS OF ESSAY QUESTIONS ON THE SUBJECTS OF THE TEACHING PROGRAM AND ON A PRACTICAL TEST WITH THE UNITY ENVIRONMENT. THE TEST TAKES PLACE PRIOR TO THE ORAL TEST AND IS PASSED WITH THE ACHIEVEMENT OF THE PREDETERMINED MINIMUM SCORE. THE WRITTEN TEST WILL NORMALLY HAVE A DURATION OF NOT LESS THAN 120 MINUTES AND IS DESIGNED TO VERIFY THE ABILITY TO CORRECTLY APPLY THE THEORETICAL KNOWLEDGE, THE ABILITY TO UNDERSTAND THE PROPOSED ISSUES.

THE ORAL TEST CONSISTS OF AN INTERVIEW WITH QUESTIONS AND DISCUSSION ON THE THEORETICAL AND METHODOLOGICAL CONTENTS INDICATED IN THE TEACHING PROGRAM. IT IS AIMED AT ASSESSING THE LEVEL OF KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING ACQUIRED BY THE STUDENT AS WELL AS CHECKING THE EXPOSURE CAPACITY USING THE APPROPRIATE TERMINOLOGY.
