Student Assessment
Description
The students’ evaluation is summative through written exams. They are asked to complete multiple choice questions, answer questions with short answers and solve problems. They know the way and criteria of the exam through both the lectures and the website of the course. Oral exams only in case some students cannot participate to the written exams due to health problems
Student Assessment methods
  • Written Exam with Short Answer Questions (Summative)
  • Written Exam with Extended Answer Questions (Summative)
  • Oral Exams (Summative)
