Assessment methods and criteria

At the end of the course a written examination on the themes developed during the classes is required for students who have attended them. For those who pass such end-course-examination, an oral exam, to be taken during the Faculty official exam days, will focus exclusively on the reading, translation and commentary of the texts in the programme. The exam will be in Spanish. The workshop attendace will be evaluated as a part of the exam. The workshop may be substituted by an essay.
