Assessment methods and criteria
Exposure of the project carried out during the academic year. The evaluation of the student is made considering both the final result of the design experience and his application in the different phases of the project. The evaluation is sufficient if the student demonstrates an acquired ability to address the issue, in terms of approach but also in terms of graphic representation and oral presentation.
In addition to the final verification procedures some mid-term reviewes are provided during the year.
