Each student is evaluated by weekly assessment tests, and a final assessment written exam, and by an optional oral exam.
For the intermediate assessment, the score is given by weighting the answers to different exercises.
For each exercise/question, a maximum score is assigned. The answer provided for each exercise/question is evaluated with a score from 0 to the max assigned score. The maximum score is assigned in the case of a correct answer, while a smaller score is assigned according to the severity of the errors. In particular, conceptual errors, and errors caused by lack of knowledge have a larger weight than errors due to misunderstandings or inaccuracies.
All these assessments contribute to reach the final mark; 32 points or more are necessary to achieve a “30 e lode” mark.
If the final exam mark is not sufficient (i.e. 18 or more), the student should ask for an oral assessment, where he should prove his knowledge of methodology and technology and their application in real world environment.
