Assessment methods and criteria

In order to facilitate students who attend the lessons, at the end of the course, is fixed a written exam (test of about 25 questions and 4 items per question) on the first part (book) of the program.
Only students who reach a mark of at least 18/30 pass the test. Students who pass the test have to prepare a second written exam (two texts on the contents of the other two books of the bibliography).
The second written exam will take place on June, July, September 2010 and January 2011.
Who doesn’t sustain to the written exam (and those who don't pass the written exams), have to present the whole program at the oral exams that take place in the normal sessions.
