Assessment methods and criteria

The exam will be carried out as oral exam.

For attending students there is an oral exam on the topics dealt with during the lessons and the related teaching materials uploaded on the e-learning platform.

For non attending students there is an oral exam on the entire programme

The exam is aimed at testing the students knowledge of the basics of the discipline and moreover at checking their capability to tackle, in a critical way, the dynamics of Italian public administration, thanks to methodology and principles they must have acquired, and therefore to be able to continue studying independently the more complex topics of administrative law, in its changing patterns, with a problem solving approach.
