Responsible
Prerequisites for admission
With reference to the Didactic Regulations (art.20), To access the third year, it is essential to have achieved at least nine exams of which:
- biological, physiological and morphological sciences
- linguistic, philosophical and socio-pedagogical sciences
- applied speech therapy sciences: preparatory
- Otolaryngological, neurological and rehabilitation sciences, Applied speech and language sciences II
- Neuropsychiatric, pedagogical and psychological sciences
The student must also have passed the 2nd year annual traineeship exam.
Assessment methods and Criteria
The learning assessment will take place through a computer classroom test with multiple choice questions. The test is delivered by the MIRROR platform which extracts randomly the questions. For each candidate are provided 31 questions from a pool of available questions. 4 questions are extracted for each module with the exception of the statistics module for which 7 questions are extracted (statistics in fact involves 2 CFU while the other modules 1 CFU each). The duration of the scheduled test is 90 minutes.
To answer the questions it will be important the ability to list and organize the acquired knowledge as well as their application for the resolution of short questions of data analysis.
The assessment of the course will be expressed by a mark in thirtieths and it will be the result obtained by the sum of the correct answers to the questions extracted. In case of score equal to 31, honors will be attributed. No intermediate tests are foreseen. The results of the test will be communicated immediately to the end of the test to each student who, in the event of a positive result with a mark of more than 18/30, will then be able to accept or reject the mark through SIFA.
