Assessment methods and criteria

Written exam for Teaching in anesthesia-analgesia, orthopedics and surgery and for teaching Nursing.
The exam will consist of multiple-choice, short-response and long-response questions.
The questions will be to evaluate the knowledge, the applied knowledge, and the student's synthesis and interpretation skills. Applied knowledge questions will present a description of clinical-care settings similar to those used in the didactics. Following each question, the score equivalent to the weight of the single response expected will be entered. As a result, the student may already be in the course of the examination, verifying in person the probable passing of the test. Examination of each single Module will be calculated in thirty-five. For passing the test, you must get at least 18/30 for each module. The overall rating will be calculated at the end of the four modules passing through the arithmetic mean.
Admission to Nursing is subordinate to the positiveness of the exam written in the other three (3) Courses (orthopedic, anesthesia-analgesic and surgical), as will test the nursing knowledge applied to Clinical paintings and treatments taught by doctors clinics.
In the event that the teacher encountered difficulties in passing the written test in Nursing, he reserves the right to examine the student at the subsequent appeal by oral examination.
For the preparation of the exam, the student will be able to use the PowerPoint presentations, the PowerPoint presentations made available to the teachers and the references to the text chapters (as per program) that can be used in the library of the CD. Lessons and clinical cases used to understand and apply the content of the disciplines.
