Assessment methods and criteria

The exam consists of 30 + 1 quiz with multiple choices, the last of which is evaluated only in case of all previous correct answers, for the purpose of awarding the laude. The grades are measured in thirtieths (0-30 scale). For each correct answer is assigned 1 point and for each incorrect or not given answer 0 points is assigned.

The written test can potentially cover all the topics included in the exam program.

The written test (45 minutes) is corrected immediately after delivery. At that point, the student who passed the written test can decide whether to accept the grade or to refuse it.

No intermediate tests are planned.
