Verification of learning
METHOD OF THE EXAMINATION: THE ACHIEVEMENT OF THE OBJECTIVES OF THE COURSE IS CERTIFIED BY AN EXAM WITH AN EVALUATION OUT OF THIRTY POINTS (FROM 18 TO 30). THE EXAM INCLUDES A WRITTEN TEST AND AN ORAL EXAMINATION THAT CAN TAKE PLACE ON DIFFERENT DAYS (THE WRITTEN TEST IS PREPARATORY TO THE ORAL TEST), EACH PART OF THE EXAM IS EVALUATED OUT OF THIRTY POINTS, WITH A MINIMUM MARK OF 18/30. THE FINAL MARK IS GIVEN BY THE ARITHMETICAL MEAN OF THE MARKS OBTAINED IN EACH PART OF THE EXAM.

WRITTEN TEST
THE WRITTEN TEST, LASTING AN HOUR AND A HALF, IS AIMED AT ASCERTAINING, IN A TRANSPARENT AND OBJECTIVE WAY, THE LEVEL OF KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING ACHIEVED BY THE STUDENT ON THE THEORETICAL AND METHODOLOGICAL CONTENTS HIGHLIGHTED IN THE PROGRAM.
THIS TEST IS MADE UP OF 20 MULTIPLE CHOICE AND 2 OPEN-ENDED QUESTIONS; EACH MULTIPLE CHOICE QUESTION HAS A VALUE OF 1 WHILE THE OPEN ANSWER HAS A VALUE OF 2 POINTS. SINCE THESE ARE MULTIPLE ANSWERS, IT IS SUFFICIENT TO INDICATE ONE, CROSSING THE ONE THAT IS CONSIDERED CORRECT BASED ON THE STUDENT’S KNOWLEDGE. THE SECOND PART IS DEDICATED TO TWO OPEN-ENDED QUESTIONS, FOCUSED ON EXPLORING BUSINESS ISSUES AND EVOLUTIONARY DYNAMICS. THE QUESTIONS ARE SIMILAR TO THOSE PROPOSED DURING IN CLASS LESSONS. THE OBJECTIVE OF THE WRITTEN EXAMINATION IS TO VERIFY THE OVERALL KNOWLEDGE OF THE PROPOSED PROGRAM.

ORAL EXAM
THE ORAL TEST, THAT IS COMMONLY SUSTAINED BY STUDENTS THAT ATTENDED THE LESSONS AND STUDENTS THAT DO NOT ATTEND THE LESSONS, LASTS ABOUT 20 MINUTES AND CONSISTS OF AN ORAL EXAMINATION, WITH QUESTIONS AND DISCUSSION THAT AIM TO BETTER VERIFY THE LEARNING OUTCOMES ACHIEVED BY INDIVIDUALS.
