Assessment methods and criteria

Attending students will take a self-assessment test (verifica in itinere) during the course. The grade given will be part of the final grade. The self- assessment test will be done only once (in December).
Students who pass the written exam will have to prepare, for the oral examination, only the second part, which consists on the reading and commenting of Don Quijote.
In order to take the oral exam, students need to have already passed both Lingua spagnola 1 (Spanish Language 1) and Letteratura spagnola 1 (Spanish Literature 1). All students are allowed to take part on the self-assessment test (prova in itinere).
The syllabus is the same for non-attending students. Students who cannot attend the lessons are kindly invited to get in touch with the professor.
