Assessment methods and criteria

The exam is oral.

During the course, however, there will be an intermediate exam, optional for the student, consisting of a multiple-choise test, about the program carried out in class until that time.
The test consists of 30 multiple-choice questions to be carried out in 35 minutes and it will be considered passed with at least 20 exact answers.
Passing this exam implies that the student, in the oral interview, will not be asked specific questions about the topics covered by the test.
The passing of the intermediate test has only value in the summer and autumn exam sessions following the end of the course.
