Assessment methods and criteria

------------------------
MM: CHIMICA
------------------------
Final verification by oral examination of the level of knowledge and in-depth analysis of the topics covered during the course. The exam foresees that the student shall prepare a deep oral presentation regarding one of the topic (free choice) of the course. The student must demonstrate that she/he has learned the basic concepts of inorganic and organic chemistry and that she/he has learned and understood methods and tools for teaching chemistry with particular attention to primary school children.
