Evaluation results/ monitoring plan

At the end of the course an evaluation procedure is carried out through the communication by each subject of the regional level of a Module of closure of the training course with distance training that certifies:

  • the successful completion of the pre-established cycle of lessons and thus the completion of the training course;
  • the students' participation in the course certifying that they have attended at least 70% of the total hours of the course and that they have correctly participated in the training activities in FAD through access to the virtual classroom.

During the course a tutor will be always present monitoring step by step the effective realization of the lessons’ plan reporting any problems that occurred in the development of the course.

Learning assessment

In order to allow ENM to carry out appropriate ex-ante, ongoing and ex-post evaluation activities of the interventions activated, subjects are required to provide learners with special evaluation questionnaires prepared by ENM, both at the start of the course and in the middle and at the end of the course.

This obligation applies both to students enrolled since the start of each course, and to students who take over successively.

In order to ensure the quality verification of the entire training process in FAD mode, it is planned to activate an evaluation "online " of the learning process as well as "ex ante" and "ex post", also "in itinere". With specific reference to the evaluation "in itinere", the resolution of the relevant tests will follow, from step by step, the teacher’s comment, aimed at suggesting compensatory measures,where necessary, and to provide learners with an objective framework of the results achieved to date, in relation to the objectives of the pathway. The evaluation has, therefore, the precise purpose of providing feedback to both the teacher and the learners, allowing to verify the progress of learning and to propose in a timely manner the necessary adjustments, supporting, at the same time, the motivation of the learner.

It should be noted that, in case of "distance" training, each SA will be asked to share the results of the evaluations of individual students with the ENM, by sending through PEC files strictly in Excel format.

Recognition or certification of learning At the end of each course, students who have attended at least 70% of the total hours and have obtained a final test/ex post assessment aimed at verifying the level of knowledge acquired on the subjects covered by the training, a "Certificate of Attendance" will be issued by the SA.
