Written exam. The exam can be taken in 2 mid-term exams or 1 full exam; in all the cases, these are written examination tests.
Each mid-term exam lasts 45 minutes. Mid-term exams consist of 2 parts: a first technical part of 1 practical problem (10/15 points max), and a second theoretical part of 5 quizzes (max 5/15 points, 1/15 point per quiz). The exam grade is the sum of points raised in the two mid-term exams.
The full exam is of 1 hour and 30 minutes. The full exam consists of 2 parts: a first technical part including 2 practical problems (max 20/30 points, about 10/30 points per problem), and a second more theoretical part of 10 quizzes (max 10/30 points, 1/30 points per quiz).
Exams with Distance Learning (DaD)
The structure of the exams (mid-term exams and full exam) remains the same: i.e., mid-term exams: 1 practical problem + 5 quizzes; full exam: 2 practical problems + 10 quizzes.
Exams will be handed out via Moodle with student visualization via Microsoft Teams (i.e., with open cam).
Quizzes will be handed out directly through Moodle, considering 3 minutes for each quiz: therefore, it is a total time of 15 minutes (5 x 3) for mid-term exams, 30 minutes (10 x 3) for full exams; the scrolling of quizzes is sequential (the student is not able to go back and forth), but 5 quizzes per page-screen are provided.
Practical problems will be also handed out through Moodle, considering 30 minutes for each exercise: therefore, it is a total time of 30 minutes (1 x 30) for mid-term exams, 60 minutes (2 x 30) for full exam; as for quizzes, the scrolling of exercises is sequential with 1 exercise per page-screen. The exercises, displayed online, will be solved on paper by students: students have to frame their own work area. Delivery takes place by uploading the photo/pdf of the exercises’ solutions to Moodle before the exam time is up.
