Learning assessment methods

The evaluation of the Students takes place through both a written test.

The  written test covers the whole program of the course consisting of theoretical questions, exercises to be carried out in a complete and open-ended way, multiple choice questions and exercises applied to economic and financial problems. The oral test can be taken only after having obtained a positive result in the written test.

The Student will have to demonstrate the acquisition of:

  •  the ability to read and understand the economic literature on the topics,
  •  the theoretical skills;
  •  the practical skills;
  •  the ability to interpret, process and communicate results.

The final mark is expressed out of thirty.

In the assessment of the examination the determination of the final grade takes into account the following elements:

  1. 1. the reasoning followed in the resolution of the exercises;
  2. 2. the correctness of the procedure identified for the solution of each exercise;
  3. 3. the adequacy of the proposed solution in relation to the skills that the Student is assumed to have acquired at the end of the course;
  4. 4. the use of an appropriate language.

To pass the exam, that is, to report a grade not lower than 18/30, the Students must demonstrate to have acquired sufficient knowledge of all the topics of the course and be able to sufficiently satisfy all the four elements listed above. To achieve a grade of 30/30 cum laude, the Students must demonstrate that they have acquired excellent knowledge of all the topics covered during the course and satisfactorily meet the four elements mentioned above.

The final written test can be replaced by participating in all the scheduled on-going tests and obtaining an overall positive results.

Students can choose to take the exam, always in written form during the ordinary exam sessions.
