Assessment methods and Criteria
The end-of-year assessment of the internship is accessible only to students who have reached the number of compulsory attendance hours for the current year and gives rise to a mark expressed in thirtieths by the exam commission. The assessment of learning is composed of three parameters each of which gives rise to a score from 1 to 10 for a final total of maximum 30 points: 1) attendance2) clinical skills 3) theoretical skills. To pass the exam it is necessary to reach a minimum score of 6 points for each parameter.
About the frequency parameter the points are attributed in proportion to the hours attended. Thus, 6 points will be attributed to the students who have attended at least 75% of the internship hours and proportionally the other assessments up to 10 which represents 100% of the available hours attended.
Clinical skills are assessed by the reference tutor by completing specific grids that provide for the achievement of specific clinical objectives for the course year and the technical and behavioral skills acquired by the student during the internship.
The practical evaluation usually takes place between the end of July and the first 10 days of September. Deadline within which the evaluation is sent to the didactic director.
The assessment test of theoretical skills consists of a 10 multiple choice questions with only one correct answer (each correct answer is assigned a value of 1 point) on the basic principles and rationale for practical training activities according to specific training objectives.
The written test is held on the same day for all students of both clinical centers enrolled in the second year of the course.
