Students are expected to behave ethically. If unethical behaviour is detected (copying,plagiarism, use of unauthorized electronic
devices and others), then it will beconsidered that the student does not meet the minimum requirements to pass thecourse. In this case, the final grade for the current academic year will befailed (0.0).
In additionto the ethical commitment, the following is underlined:
In the first place, a person registered in the course is by default subject to the continuous assessment system; if the student does not want to be in this system, the he/she must expressly renounce to it within the established deadlines.
In the present course, the continuous assessment will collect all the evidence oflearning from the person enrolled and will be grouped into three assessments.The first two will take place preferably in the laboratories: Test 1 and Test2. The third evaluation may be written: Test 3. If the student does notrenounce to the continuous evaluation system, tests that are not attended will be considered as qualified as zero (0.0). A minimum score of 30% out of 10 (3.0points) must be obtained in the last two evaluations: Test 2 and Test 3, inorder to be eligible to have the final average calculated. If this requirementis not met and the final average is equal to or greater than 5, the final gradewill be 4:
Test 1 * 0.3 + (Test 2>=3) * 0. 4 + (Test 3>=3) * 0. 3 >=5
A studentis considered passed if he/she obtains a five or more in compliance with allthe requirements.
The following must be met to pass the subject under continuous assessment:
Test 1 * 0.3 + (Test 2>=3) * 0. 4 + (Test 3>=3) * 0.3 >= 5
Once thefirst evaluation: Test 1, has been carried out, the person enrolled may requestto abandon the continuous evaluation system (within the period and by the meansestablished by the teaching staff). In this way, the person enrolled will beable to follow the non-continuous assessment system.
a person does not reach the passing level in the first exam (May/June) but has
passed the minimum mark in the second exam: Test 2, in the second call
(June/July) he/she can choose to keep the grades of the first two tests, and
take a 4-points exam, or take a 100% exam in the subject (10 points). If the
person takes the 4-points test, he/she will be asked for a minimum score of 30%
out of 10 (3. 0 points) in order to calculate the final grade. If this
requirement is not met and the final average is equal to or greater than 5, the
final grade will be 4.
