Examination Methods

The final exam consists of a written assessment based on open and multiple choice questions. An equivalent version of the assessment can always be perfomed online during the academic year 2020/2021.

The exam will be evaluated on a scale 0-30. During the final exam, the students are tested upon their knowledge and ability to contextualize the theoretical models presented during the course. Furthermore, students are requested to prove their ability to critically analyze and comment findings in published scientific research and in policy reports published by major international research institutions (OECD, IMF, WB), as well as to analyze the data that can be used to describe the economic scenario of single countries or to compare different countries.

All students must seat at one of the official exam sections. All the students (attending or not attending the classes) who seat the first exam section (exclusively) will be granted the possibility to integrate their final grade with two additional activities:

i) Students will prepare a written essay on a topic to be agreed upon with the teacher. The essay will be delivered the first exam section day at the latest, while its content will be presented in class/zoom call during the last class. The essay will be evaluated on the basis of the originality of the material and the quality of the comments.

ii) Students will also participate actively to the ITED course blog available on the online platform Moodle. The blog covers topics that are related to economic development. Participation will be graded on the basis of the relevance of the comments.

Further details about the grading and weighting of the essay and the blog participation will be provided during the classes.

The students who will not engage in writing the essay and participating to the blog, or who will take the exam after the first official seat, will be graded exclusively on the basis of their exam result.

Type D and Type F activities

Nei piani didattici di ciascun Corso di studio è previsto l’obbligo di conseguire un certo numero di crediti formativi mediante attività a scelta (chiamate anche "di tipologia D e F").

Oltre che in insegnamenti previsti nei piani didattici di altri corsi di studio e in certificazioni linguistiche o informatiche secondo quanto specificato nei regolamenti di ciascun corso, tali attività possono consistere anche in iniziative extracurriculari di contenuto vario, quali ad esempio la partecipazione a un seminario o a un ciclo di seminari, la frequenza di laboratori didattici, lo svolgimento di project work, stage aggiuntivo, eccetera.

Come per ogni altra attività a scelta, è necessario che anche queste non costituiscano un duplicato di conoscenze e competenze già acquisite dallo studente.

Quelle elencate in questa pagina sono le iniziative extracurriculari che sono state approvate dal Consiglio della Scuola di Economia e Management e quindi consentono a chi vi partecipa l'acquisizione dei CFU specificati, alle condizioni riportate nelle pagine di dettaglio di ciascuna iniziativa.

Si ricorda in proposito che:
- tutte queste iniziative richiedono, per l'acquisizione dei relativi CFU, il superamento di una prova di verifica delle competenze acquisite, secondo le indicazioni contenute nella sezione "Modalità d'esame" della singola attività;
- lo studente è tenuto a inserire nel proprio piano degli studi l'attività prescelta e a iscriversi all'appello appositamente creato per la verbalizzazione, la cui data viene stabilita dal docente di riferimento e pubblicata nella sezione "Modalità d'esame" della singola attività.

ATTENZIONE: Per essere ammessi a sostenere una qualsiasi attività didattica, inlcuse quelle a scelta, è necessario essere iscritti all'anno di corso in cui essa viene offerta. Si raccomanda, pertanto, ai laureandi delle sessioni di dicembre e aprile di NON svolgere attività extracurriculari del nuovo anno accademico, cui loro non risultano iscritti, essendo tali sessioni di laurea con validità riferita all'anno accademico precedente. Quindi, per attività svolte in un anno accademico cui non si è iscritti, non si potrà dar luogo a riconoscimento di CFU.
