Didactic methods

Teaching methods: Lectures with image projection, then made available to the student.

Learning assessment procedures

Assessment: written exam. Examination mode: written. The four-hour written examination involves a written paper, in response to six questions. The student will cover some topics discussed in class as a whole and for specific aspects that will be indicated in the wording of the question. It is, therefore, an "open" question and also regarding specific points of the topics covered.
The questions will refer to six topics of your choice: two topics from the first block, two from the second block, one from the third block and one from the fourth block.
For preparation refer to lecture notes, lecture recordings available on moodle as long as it is allowed by the University. In addition, refer to the high school art history textbook. Consultation of encyclopedic entries available online is considered useful. As recommended in class on several occasions, rely on the archive of images collected personally by the student during lectures and exam preparation, for example by drawing on google images. Part of this essential archive is already offered in moodle, but only for topics covered in class and less easily accessed.
As a facilitation in exam scheduling, the student is allowed to split the exam into two sessions (the first call for topics in the first and second blocks, a second call for those in the third and fourth blocks). Calls from different sessions may be chosen. In case the student chooses to split the exam, communication by e mail is requested the week before the appeal.

Evaluation criteria

Assessment criteria: The student's ability to formulate an independent argument on authors, problems and stylistic issues based on the questions delivered in the written test will be assessed. Ability to independently express connections and comparisons between personalities and works to which they belong will be especially evaluated.

Criteria for the composition of the final grade

Composition of the final grade: The final test can be divided into several modules, which will be assigned a partial grade. The average of the partial grades assigned to each part will result in the final grade recorded on the student's transcript.
