Modalita' di esame: The students are required to pass a written examination (open-ended questions on main contents of the course). Those passing the written examination will be allowed to increase the mark by means of an oral examination (integration). The oral examination is based on the discussion of eventual weaknesses or missing answers in the previous written examination. Additional open-ended questions on the modules’ contents might be proposed only in order to reach "with honour" (cum laude) in the final mark. During the course, the students are required to prepare reports, PPT presentations and other documents as part of classrooms exercises and/or home assignments. Their active participation and quality of reports/documents presented are taken into consideration for final assessment of their performances.
Criteri di valutazione: The student's performances are assessed on the basis of: (a) level of acquired knowledge about concepts, issues and data which are presented and discussed during the course; (b) capacity to link learned concepts and data with the complexity of forest policy and market trends; (c) capacity of critical analysis and correctly expressing complex concepts.
The written examination counts 50% for final marking; active participation during the classroom activities and quality of reports/presentations prepared for classroom exercises during the course count for the remaining 50% of final marking. A premium mark (max 1%) is assigned to those students who regularly attend classroom lessons.
