Examination Methods

50% scientific work in English, 30% exercises, 20% participation in class
Objectives of the assessment tests
The written test is intended to ascertain the knowledge of the topics discussed in class and the ability to apply the logical schemes to the various themes proposed.
Participation in the classroom is verified through the student's active presence and the quality of the argument placing special attention to the scientific readings proposed during the course.
The analytical capacity is verified through the exercises done at home either in pencil or using the Gams or Stata language. The approach is "learning by doing."
Content and method of carrying out the assessment tests
The written exam is about the writing of an applied scientific work chosen by the student in concert with the teacher on a subject related to the materials presented in the course as they are shown in the syllabus delivered to the student at the opening of the course and can be consulted on the dedicated e-learning site. The scientific work is discussed at the end of the course with a professional presentation in the presence of all the students who are required to take an active and critical participation to the work presented.
Non attending and ERASMUS students are requested to contact the teacher at the beginning of the course to agree on the procedures for the assessment tests.

Students with disabilities or specific learning disorders (SLD), who intend to request the adaptation of the exam, must follow the instructions given HERE
