Exam description

The exam is an oral test aimed at understanding the knowledge acquired by the student on the mechanisms which make the cartographic image a fundamental tool for the popularization of political discourse.

Assessment methods

The oral test ascertains the degree of acquisition of the methodological tools in order to link the geographical discourse to the political and ideological communication and to define its relevance among the tecniques of social control.

The assessment of the learning level reached by the student during the oral final exam takes into account the following value scale:

- the exam will be evaluated with marks from very good (28-29) to excellent (30 and 30 with honors) if the student, through conceptual knowledge and clarity, has a full command of the topics covered;

- the exam will be evaluated with marks from good (25-27) to satisfactory (23-24) if the student with correct but not always appropriate language shows an in-depth understanding of the topics covered;

- the exam will be considered sufficient (18-22) whether the student with inappropriate and not very clear expressive methods shows an approximate overall    preparation;

- the exam will be evaluated negatively whether the student shows important training gaps.
