Examination Methods

Verification of learning

At the beginning of the course, a questionnaire will be administered to the participants aimed at defining the level of initial knowledge of the participants themselves.
The questionnaire will consist of 20 multiple choice questions (one correct) distributed as follows by macro topics:
• 10 questions: technical-motor area
• 5 questions: methodological area
• 5 questions: physical preparation

The final evaluation will be expressed in 100/100 divided as follows:
o 40/100 Technical evaluation - ongoing practice:
- 25/100 technical skills
- 15/100 conduction capacity
o 25/100 Written exam with barrier

The questionnaire must be administered during the last lesson of the course.
The closed-ended questions with 3/4 answer options will concern topics covered during the course.
The scoring criteria are as follows:
◊ Correct answer: +1
◊ Wrong answer: -1
◊ Answer not given: 0

The score contained in the questionnaire will be structured as follows:
◊ 0-10 points: barrier not passed, compulsory to repeat the test.
◊ 11-15 points: it is necessary to deepen the theme that is the object of the test
◊ 16-24 points: barrier crossed
◊ 25 points: exemption for the part relating to the questions on the oral test questionnaire and achievement of 15 points.

- 35/100 Oral test to be carried out at least once after the administration of the questionnaire
- 15/100 questions relating to the questionnaire (exemption if the score reported in the questionnaire is 25/100)
- 20/100 questions at the discretion of the teacher
The minimum score to obtain eligibility is set at 60/100 (18).
