Examination Methods

STRUCTURE OF EXAM

The exam consists of two steps:

STEP 1 ---------------------------

Written exam (mandatory) to evaluate the knowledge acquired by students in the classroom and / or through individual learning. In particular, a questionnaire will be administered in a computer room through the LMS of the University: https://elearning.univr.it/j/index.php.
The questionnaire will be composed of items (questions) of different types. The questions will be related to the objectives of the basic educational program.

STEP 2 ---------------------------

Oral exam (optional). Students can choose one of the following tests:

--- 2.A Oral interview for the assessment of the knowledge acquired by students through the reading and study of one of the following texts:

- D. Angeloni, P. Cardini, G. B. Ronsivalle, Il Coding nella Scuola primaria. Guida pratica per l’insegnamento del Coding con Code.org, Scratch e Minecraft, Docendum & WeMole, 2016.
- J. E. Kelly III, S. Hamm, Macchine intelligenti: Watson e l'era del cognitive computing, Egea, 2016.
- I. R. Nourbakhsh, Robot fra noi. Le creature intelligenti che stiamo per costruire, Bollati Boringhieri, 2014.

--- 2.B. Creation and discussion of a multimedia presentation. In particular, the student will be able to produce a multimedia presentation for teaching on a topic agreed with the teacher, by applying the principles of Multimedia Learning and Presentation Design techniques. For this purpose the teacher will do some lessons in a computer room for the acquisition of digital skills for editing texts/images/audio/video and creating multimedia presentations.

CRITERIA FOR THE FINAL EVALUATION The threshold of the written test (Step 1) is equal to 60% (18/30). This test is mandatory. Students who fail the test must repeat the entire exam in one of the following sessions.
The oral test (Step 2) is optional. To access the oral test you must pass the written test (Step 1). Students who pass the written questionnaire can choose one of the following options:

A. request the verbalization of the vote;

B. access to the oral test (Step 2), in order to improve their final score and get the “laude”. The oral test (Step 2) can not determine any reduction of the score of the written test. The oral exam can be achieved with a maximum of 6 points out of 30. These points will be added to the points already obtained in the written test (Step 1). If the end result greater than 30/30, the excess points will be converted to "laude".

Stage e Tirocini

Le ulteriori attività formative (crediti F) sono interamente coperte dall’attività di tirocinio “indiretto” (1 cfu) da svolgersi nel secondo anno e di tirocinio “diretto” (14 cfu) da svolgersi presso enti convenzionati per un numero complessivo di 15 cfu (375 ore). Chi è iscritta/o al curriculum servizi per l’infanzia è tenuta/o a svolgere il tirocinio presso nidi e servizi per la prima infanzia per almeno il 50% delle ore.
Il tirocinio professionalizzante (375 ore, pari a 15 cfu), è obbligatorio sia nella sua forma diretta che indiretta.
Il tirocinio indiretto, della durata di 25 ore a frequenza obbligatoria al 75%, si svolge in Università per 20 ore e in forma di lavoro individuale per 5 ore e consiste in un accompagnamento iniziale delle/degli studenti da parte dei tutor attraverso un percorso formativo dotandoli di conoscenze e strumenti adeguati a osservare, comprendere e rielaborare criticamente l’esperienza di tirocinio nei servizi educativi e ad affrontare il tirocinio negli enti con metodo e consapevolezza. Il percorso, da attuare in gruppi da 20-25 persone sotto la supervisione di un tutor, risponde alle esigenze costantemente espresse sia dalle/dagli studenti stessi sia dalle parti sociali che dai referenti degli enti convenzionati.
Il tirocinio diretto si propone di raggiungere i seguenti obiettivi:
  • fare esperienza diretta di attività professionali, che richiedono un livello di preparazione al lavoro educativo;
  • approfondire in particolare il rapporto tra preparazione teorica, acquisita mediante lo studio, ed esperienza pratica, tra mondo del sapere e della cultura e mondo del lavoro e delle professioni;
Al termine del tirocinio diretto lo studente deve presentare una relazione scritta, nella modalità concordata con il tutor accademico.

Nuove Linee Guida per il tirocinio di Scienze dell'educazione.

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