Modalità di esame: Prova orale facoltativa; Prova scritta tramite PC con l'utilizzo della piattaforma di ateneo;
Description The exam has a written and an oral part. The written exam is delivered using the Exam platform, integrated with the proctoring tool Respondus. It is also possible to give an optional oral exam, according to the rules described below. The written exam will be given at the scheduled date and time, as communicated to students and will consist of two parts: Fundamentals of Electrical Systems and Fundamentals of Electronic Systems. Each part has a maximum score of 16 points. Each part has * 4 multiple-choice quizzes: 0.75 points per questions, -0.25 penalty points for errors * 4 short numerical quizzes: 1.25 points per questions, 5% (unless otherwise stated) of numerical tolerance allowed on the result * Solution of a written exercise with multiple questions: 8 total points. The written exercise is a classical exercise and must be solved on A4 pages, scanned or photographed and uploaded on the Exam platform in digital format. Duration The duration of each module is 50 minutes. There will be a break between the two parts. As an example: * Start Fundamentals of Electrical Systems: 8:00am * End Fundamentals of Electrical Systems: 9:15am * Max duration 50 minutes (increased to 65 minutes for students with special needs) * Start Fundamentals of Electronic Systems: 9:15pm * End Fundamentals of Electronic Systems: 10:30pm * Max duration 50 minutes (increased to 65 minutes for students with special needs) Permissible and non-permissible aids During the exam it is possible to use * a scientific calculator * pen, pencil, drafting instruments * blank A4 sheets (max of 3 pages) for the written exercise to be scanned and uploaded as previously described) * The exam is a “closed book” examination: books and formula sheets are not admitted. * Everything that is not officially allowed, must be considered as a non-permissible aid. Cheating is a serious academic offense. Students discovered engaging in such behavior during the exam shall earn a failing grade and their case shall be reported to the Academic authorities for further disciplinary actions. Grading The final score is obtained summing up the results of the two parts. The exam is failed if any of the following is verified * total score (Fundamentals of Electrical Systems and Fundamentals of Electronic Systems) lower than 16 points * partial score (Fundamentals of Electrical Systems or Fundamentals of Electronic Systems) lower than 7 points The total score of the two parts will be limited to 30 points in case of higher score. Oral Exam Candidates with a positive total score have access to the optional oral examination that consists of a 1 or 2 questions related to the course program of both modules. In this case, the final score is the mean value of the written and oral exam. To access the written and oral exam, it is necessary to independently apply through the official registration website. The oral exam will be given remotely, with the teleconference tool communicated to the students a few days in advance or in person, according to the University rules and restrictions. The oral exam is * mandatory for students with a non sufficient total score (16 or 17 points) * mandatory in case of doubts regarding the written exam. In these cases the Students will be informed a few days after the written test * upon request of the Students
