The final learning assessment is the result of a continuous evaluation that will establish the final mark, expressed in thirtieths.
Two in itinere tests and one final oral examination are programmed, according to this schedule:
1. One written tests: up to 3 points
2. One student’s PowerPoint presentation (flipped classrooms) focused on relevant paper selected from the literature: up to 3 points
The average of the points obtained in the two intermediate tests will define the range of the final marks in thirtieths, as following:
• 1 point out of 3: 18-21/30
• 2 point out of 3: 22-25/30
• 3 point out of 3: 26-30/30
3- Final oral exam. If the oral examination is barely sufficient, the final mark may be lower than the “in itinere” average mark.
When the answers are sufficient to the question asked, and/or the student didn’t add further notion and/or the exposition, the mark will be just average.
When the answer was elaborated above standard, e.g. expanding the answer to other topics, while making the connections within the different subjects, the maximum of the marks foreseen by each range can be obtained.
The written and the oral test aim to ascertaining the knowledge of the main topics of the course and to establishing the ability acquired by the student to critically analyze the key principles to be considered in the IVF laboratory.
