Type of Assessment
Learning assessment methods are set up as follows:
A) an oral exam and a written test for attending students;
B) an oral exam for not attending students.
A) the oral exam focuses on the general part of the course. The written test consists of a paper of a maximum of seven hundred words on a subject dealt with in the special part of the course. The final evaluation of the Student is provided for 40% by the oral exam and 60% by the written test;
