Prerequisites: The class does not require any "bridging courses" but some information connected with classes taught during the first year (mainly mathematics chemistry and biology).
Target skills and knowledge: The goal of the course is to guarantee to the students to acquire knowledge on principle aspects affecting quality of plant base foods. Students will acquire science based knowledge on the most important qualitative traits of plant based food and on the principal productive and environmental parameters able to affect quality of plants during the production and post-harvest phases. Some practical skills on technics to evaluate quality in field and lab will also be acquired
Examination methods: The final evaluation will be by means of multiple choices question (test) during the first "session" after the end of the class (from january to February) and by mean of oral exam in all the other dates.
No intermediate test will be done.
The multiple choices test (1 right and 3 wrong) will be given through the Moodle Platform. In the test there will be also a variable number (5-8) open questions (answer no longer than 10 lines) in order to better evaluate students preparation.
Assessment criteria: The evaluation of the student will be based on the comprehension of the addressed topics and on the base of the concepts and methodologies learnt during the class. The ability of the student of using such aspects in an independent way will also be taken into account.
