Examination Methods

Assessment methods and criteria
The assessment test is aimed at verifying the acquisition of specific concepts and vocabulary enabling the student to independently elaborate an interpretation and a description of the main cultural processes in place in complex western societies. In particular, students will be required to independently analyze the communication processes transmitted by the press.

Bibliography for the evaluation:
A. Donati, Sociologia della relazione, Bologna, il Mulino, fino a pag. 96 or another book that will be published and communicated to the students.
B. Griswold W., Sociologia della cultura, Bologna, Il Mulino.
C. Ong W., Oralità e scrittura, Bologna, Il Mulino (capp. 3,4,5/pagg 77-198).
D. Slides available at the e-learning web page.

Exam modality:
Normally the course requires a final oral assessment (exam) of the contents acquired by the students.
However, at the end of the course, is scheduled a written exam (test of about 32 questions and 4 items per question) on the first two books of the reading list (A e B).
Only students who reach a mark of at least 18/30 pass the test.
The mark obtained is valid till February 2020.
The test takes place only once a year.
The written test is aimed at verifying the acquisition of concepts and the specific vocabulary of the sociology of cultural processes.
Those who pass the written test must support a further oral examination on the remaining part of the program (letter C of bibliography). The second oral assesment (exam) will be held in the ordinary calls of June, July, September 2019 and the months of January and February 2020.
Those who don’t take or pass the first written exam, will present the whole syllabus at the oral exams that take place in the normal sessions.
Those who pass the written test, but do not complete the examination procedure (the oral exam on the second part of the program) before February 2020 must take the exam on the whole syllabus in oral form.
