Assessment methods and criteria

For attending students, there are two partial written tests (open questions and multiple-choice tests). One during the term on the first part of the program (General Part ) and one at the end (novels). The final oral exam will allow you to discuss the results and fill the gaps.
For non-attending students and for attending students who have not obtained good notes in partials, the final oral exam will cover the whole course program.
Both partial tests and oral exam are aimed at verifying the property of language, the ability to analyze and argue, and the depth of acquired knowledge. The tests take place in Italian or in Spanish, at the choice of the student.
