Learning outcomes

This course gives the students information on the structural organization of the healthy human body and the relationship between structural organization and function, with special emphasis on the apparatuses involved in motor activity. The expected learning outcomes are as follows. KNOWLEDGE: Basic human anatomy, with special reference to the structures involved in movement (bones, joints, skeletal muscles). SKILLS: Following fruitfully the curricular courses requiring knowledge of anatomy. Predicting and evaluating the structural and functional modifications of the human body during physical exercise.

Assessment methods and criteria

The final examination is intended to assess the student’s knowledge of and ability to describe the structural organization of the healthy human body and the relationship between structural organization and function, with special reference to the apparatuses involved in motor activity
The test will be administered on paper as follows: 30 multiple-choice questions (single-correct-answer from a list of 5 possible answers) on all the topics listed in the program; one open-ended question on the musculoskeletal apparatus; one open-ended question on all the other topics listed in the program. The multiple-choice test will be evaluated as follows: one point for each question answered correctly, and no points gained or lost when a question is either unanswered or incorrectly answered. Each part of the final examination will be scored, and the whole exam score will be the arithmetic mean of the three marks.
The assessment method is identical for both attending and non-attending students.
