Assessment methods and criteria
Exhibition of the work done and its path. Student assessment is made by taking into account both the final result and his/her application in the various phases of the project. The evaluation is sufficient if the project demonstrates a capacity acquired to address the issue, in terms of approach but also in terms of graphic representation and verbal presentation. In addition to the final check there are some moments of intermediate verification of learning, conducted at seminar groups within the confines of the single workshop.
