Assessment methods and criteria

Assessment will consist of a written exam (in Italian or Spanish) on theoretical and practical issues concerning the course programme.

LINGUISTIC COMPETENCE REQUIRED:
Level 2 (ALTE), B1 (Council of Europe).
Assessment of linguistic competence will be on the grounds of certificates issued by the CLA (the University Linguistic Centre) or by other accredited institutions (see “Students’ Manual”, p. 25).

RECOMMENDATIONS REGARDING THE LINGUISTIC SKILLS CERTIFICATION - WRITTEN TEST AND REGISTRATION.
We would like to remind the students that, where exams and registrations should take place, lectures are charged to check only the results concerning linguistic certificate (CLA test) carried out during the same exam session. Therefore, the students that have got the linguistic competence, introductory to the Spanish language written test, during the previous CLA sessions shall ask for a paper copy of the certificate in the testing office before coming to the test or the registration previously taken. In case of absence of the certificate, neither the registration nor the test will take place.
