Examination Methods

------------------------
MM: TEORIA

The exam consists of a final oral examination, in thirtieths, to evaluate the skills acquired by students. Special attention will be given to the usage of professional vocabulary. There will not be intermediate assessments. The exam of the Principles and Basis of the Social Service is preliminary in order to take the final exam of this course.
------------------------
MM: PRINCIPI E FONDAMENTI
------------------------
The exam will be in written form. The exam is aimed at evaluating knowledge of the basic elements of social work (its nature, aims and the theoretical and value foundations) and the examinee’s ability to contextualize social interventions within the historical context and that of social policies. The exam will cover the whole programme and will consist of 10 open-ended questions. Each question will be awarded a score from 0 to 1. The total score, ranging from a minimum of 0 to a maximum of 10, will then be converted into thirtieths. Once this module and the one on "Theory" are completed, which together form the course of Methods and Techniques of Social Work I, the student will register one grade, which will be the average of the grades obtained in the two modules. The teacher, as coordinator of the course, will register the final grade.

Practical information for students


Stage e Tirocini

Le attività̀ di tirocinio degli studenti si svolgono presso strutture esterne, convenzionate con l’Università degli Studi di Verona ai sensi delle vigenti disposizioni in materia. Nelle strutture esterne gli studenti svolgono le attività di tirocinio sotto la responsabilità di un assistente sociale (Tutor-supervisore), appartenente a dette strutture, coordinato a sua volta dal responsabile del tirocinio presso il Corso di Studio.
In assenza di un assistente sociale, operante nella struttura esterna, il Collegio didattico, per quanto di competenza, decide, su proposta dei responsabili del tirocinio, in ordine alle condizioni per l’effettuazione o la prosecuzione delle attività di tirocinio degli studenti interessati. Le attività di tirocinio sono obbligatorie per almeno 450 ore.
Il Collegio didattico, in deroga alle disposizioni del presente articolo, può consentire a studenti che si trovino in particolari condizioni, in specie se disabili, lavoratori o impegnati in organismi collegiali dell’Università degli Studi di Verona, di non ottemperare in parte all’obbligo di frequenza alle attività di tirocinio, predisponendo forme alternative di tirocinio, anche tramite supporti telematici e multimediali interattivi.
I responsabili delle attività di tirocinio presso il Corso di Studio, anche avvalendosi di appositi collaboratori o tutori esterni, accertano la presenza degli studenti presso le rispettive strutture. A tal fine utilizzano un apposito libretto di frequenza per ciascuno studente.
Al termine dell’attività di tirocinio, lo studente deve presentare una relazione scritta al responsabile di tale attività presso il Corso di Studio. Lo studente elabora la relazione scritta, controfirmata dal Tutor-supervisore. La relazione finale viene valutata dal responsabile del tirocinio presso il Corso di Studio e deve tenere conto degli obiettivi prefissati dal Collegio didattico.


La valutazione viene attribuita al tirocinio nel seguente modo: sufficiente = 1; buono = 2; ottimo = 3; eccellente = 4 e verrà aggiunta alla media dei voti del curriculum al momento della discussione della tesi.
Gli Uffici della Direzione Didattica e Servizi agli Studenti predispongono la documentazione necessaria allo svolgimento delle attività̀ di tirocinio, comprese attestazioni e certificazioni.
Nel caso in cui lo studente partecipi a programmi di mobilità internazionale, le attività̀ di tirocinio vengono regolamentate come segue:

A – Lo studente svolge il Tirocinio presso la sede estera.
Se lo studente svolge il Tirocinio all’estero si ritengono assolti gli obbligo relativi al Laboratorio se:
  • -  lo studente aggiorna il proprio docente/tutor con brevi relazioni mensili da inviare mezzo mail, sull’andamento del lavoro svolto presso la sede estera;
  • -  produce una relazione finale completa del tirocinio svolto.
    La valutazione finale del laboratorio di guida al tirocinio sarà̀ effettuata da parte del tutor del laboratorio sulla base della relazione dello studente tenendo conto della eventuale valutazione da parte del supervisore estero.
 
B – Lo studente non svolge il Tirocinio presso la sede estera.
Se lo studente non svolge il Tirocinio nella sede estera e lo deve fare al rientro:
lo studente effettua uno/due incontri individuali iniziali con il docente/tutor in cui predisporre quanto necessita per l’avvio del tirocinio e nei quali verranno forniti materiali, griglie ed eventuali testi di riferimento;
invia brevi relazioni mensili sull’andamento del tirocinio che sarà svolto in Italia al di fuori del periodo in cui si tiene il laboratorio di guida al tirocinio;
produce la relazione finale completa del tirocinio svolto”. 

Per altre informazioni in merito alle procedure per svolgere il tirocinio, è possibile contattare l'Ufficio Stage e Tirocini.
