EXAMS

Exam description

The exam is conducted with test made by questions with multiple-choice answers. 64 questions are submitted (8 for each module) each with a minimum of 3 and a maximum of 5 possible answers; only one answer for each question is correct. Each correct answer has a value of 0.5 points. The overall rating is given by the sum of the right answers. No penalties are applied for incorrect answers or for non-completed fields. Candidates have 60 minutes to complete the elaborate.

Assessment methods

The methods for assessing the candidate's preparation with multiple-choice questions recognice several reasons:
- the integrated course consists of 8 different modules managed by different teachers and with different themes only partially overlapping. There is a need to ensure candidate knoweledge for each of the modules and on various topics covered in the module. The most effective way is, in our opinion,  the multiple-choice test.
- The multiple-choice test is an objective method of evaluation, equanimous for students and without  stress or anxiety of the candidate that may occur in the oral exam.
- professors are generally overbusy and it will be difficult to organize an examination board where all professors are always present. The Multiple choice test allows us to explore the candidate's general knoweledge in all the arguments even in the absence of the reference teacher.
