Assessment methods and Criteria
The exam consists of a written and an oral part, both of them mandatory. The written part aims at verifying the capacity of solving exercises and the knowledge of main topics presented during the classes. The duration of the written exam will be proportional to the number of exercises and questions assigned, also taking into account the nature and complexity of the exercises themselves (however, the duration will not exceed three hours). The written test can be replaced by two ongoing tests. The oral exam can be taken only if the written component has been successfully passed. The oral part consists of an oral examination that focuses mainly on theoretical topics of the course and on the written exam. The complete final examination is passed if all the two parts (written and oral) are successfully passed. Final marks are given using the numerical range 0-30, and will be communicated immediately after the oral examination.
