Verification of learning
THE EXAM INCLUDES THE REALIZATION OF A PROJECT AND THE DRAFTING OF THE RELATED REPORT. THE ASSESSMENT OF THE ACHIEVEMENT OF THE OBJECTIVES SET WILL TAKE PLACE THROUGH AN ORAL INTERVIEW WITH A SCORE IN THIRTIETHS BASED ON THE PROJECT PRESENTED. THE PROJECT AIMS TO ASSESS THE STUDENT'S PRACTICAL SKILLS AND PROVIDES FOR THE DESIGN AND EXECUTION OF A COMMAND SIGNAL DRIVEN BY A PHYSIOLOGICAL PARAMETER. THE PROJECT CAN BE INDIVIDUAL OR GROUP. THE EVALUATION OF THE PROJECTS, WITH A MAXIMUM SCORE OF 15 POINTS, WILL BE CARRIED OUT TAKING INTO ACCOUNT THE FOLLOWING ASPECTS:
- FRAMING OF THE PROBLEM;
- SCIENTIFIC RIGOR IN THE DESCRIPTION OF THE IDENTIFIED PROCEDURE;
- RESPECT DURING THE EXECUTION OF THE PREVIOUSLY IDENTIFIED PROCEDURE;
- CONTENT AND STRUCTURE OF THE DESCRIPTIVE REPORT OF THE PROJECT.
THE ORAL INTERVIEW, WITH A MAXIMUM SCORE OF 15 POINTS, TYPICALLY LASTS 20MIN. IN ORDER TO VERIFY THE STUDENT'S PRESENTATION SKILLS, THREE QUESTIONS ARE USUALLY ASKED ABOUT THEIR PROJECT, ONE OF WHICH IS AIMED AT EXPOSING THE OPERATING PRINCIPLE OF THE TRANSDUCER, A SECOND CONCERNING THE IMPLEMENTATION PART AND A THIRD DESCRIPTION OF THE POSSIBLE APPLICATION CONTEXTS. VOTING WILL DEPEND ON THE DEGREE OF MATURITY SHOWN IN THE ACQUISITION OF THE EXHIBITED CONTENTS, THE QUALITY OF THE ORAL PRESENTATION AND THE DEMONSTRATED JUDGMENT AUTONOMY.
THE FINAL VOTE CONSISTS OF THE SUM OF THE VOTES SHOWN IN THE PROJECT PART AND IN THE EXHIBITION PART.
THE MINIMUM LEVEL OF EVALUATION (18) IS ASSIGNED WHEN THE STUDENT SHOWS A FRAGMENTED KNOWLEDGE OF THE THEORETICAL CONTENTS AND PRESENTS A DESIGN PROJECT CONTAINING AT LEAST THE FUNDAMENTAL ELEMENTS THAT DEFINE THE EVALUATION. THE MAXIMUM LEVEL (30) IS ASSIGNED WHEN THE STUDENT DEMONSTRATES A COMPLETE AND IN-DEPTH KNOWLEDGE OF THE THEORETICAL CONTENTS AND PRESENTS AN EXHAUSTIVE DESIGN ELABORATION IN ALL THE ASPECTS CONSIDERED FOR THE PURPOSES OF THE EVALUATION.
PRAISE IS GIVEN WHEN THE CANDIDATE DEMONSTRATES SIGNIFICANT MASTERY OF THE THEORETICAL AND OPERATIONAL CONTENT AND SHOWS THAT HE IS ABLE TO PRESENT THE TOPICS WITH CONSIDERABLE LANGUAGE PROPERTIES AND AUTONOMOUS PROCESSING SKILLS EVEN IN APPLICATION CONTEXTS DIFFERENT FROM THOSE PROPOSED IN THE PROJECT.
