Assessment methods and criteria

A written test is divided into three parts. The first part (a) consists of recognition of twenty images from Terraroli and Pinelli: each image is projected for one minute and one has to indicate the author, the subject, the date (or the period, if the date is not certain) and even the location. The second part (b) consists of a question on a specific theme (i.e., one work, one artist, one artistic school, relationship between schools etc.): the time is 45 minutes. It will follow a last question (c), relating to the books of Pinelli and Sciolla: the time is 25 minutes.
In order to have a positive mark (18 or above), one has to recognize at least ten out of twenty images, and the answers to the questions (b) and (c) has to be considered sufficiently accurate.
