Modalità di esame: Prova scritta (in aula); Prova orale facoltativa; Elaborato scritto prodotto in gruppo;
Exam: Written test; Optional oral exam; Group essay;
Gli studenti e le studentesse con disabilità o con Disturbi Specifici di Apprendimento (DSA), oltre alla segnalazione tramite procedura informatizzata, sono invitati a comunicare anche direttamente al/la docente titolare dell'insegnamento, con un preavviso non inferiore ad una settimana dall'avvio della sessione d'esame, gli strumenti compensativi concordati con l'Unità Special Needs, al fine di permettere al/la docente la declinazione più idonea in riferimento alla specifica tipologia di esame.
Exam: Written test; Optional oral exam; Group essay;
The final assessment is based on a written test and a optional oral examination. The written test includes: 10 mandatory quiz, 4 mandatory numerical exercises and 3 optional questions on laboratory part. The time slot for the written examination is 2 hours. The final score is given by a weighted average of the evaluations of the mandatory part (max total score 27/30) plus max 3 points for the optional part. Oral assesment is optional and can be requested by the students (points attributed to oral exam can be in the range between -3points and + 3 points) Professors can however ask for an oral exam to students who are suspected of cheating.
In addition to the message sent by the online system, students with disabilities or Specific Learning Disorders (SLD) are invited to directly inform the professor in charge of the course about the special arrangements for the exam that have been agreed with the Special Needs Unit. The professor has to be informed at least one week before the beginning of the examination session in order to provide students with the most suitable arrangements for each specific type of exam.
