The educational and legal relevance of State Exams
As written in the ministerial dispositions and in the Decalogue on professional ethics, the exam represents an extremely important educational moment in the students’ growth.
Beyond the basic and essential role of education of future generations, the scholastic and formative system also plays a key role in making young generations aware of values shared by society at large, making them feel part of their national community, developing their trust in institutions in order to make them actively participate in the same society. In the fulfilment of this duty the formative function of the state exam is achieved.
In fact, the true protagonists of these exams are the students who demonstrate, firstly to themselves and thereafter to the commission, the goals achieved and competences acquired.
Both the intermediate and quarterly valuations, carried out throughout the year represent a means through which the school involves and empower students in order to achieve the best possible outcome at the final exam scrutiny.
With reference to the guidelines of the MIUR (page 7), our association, complying with the compulsory students’ education on behalf of the families, reminds Italian associated members that by the end of the school year, each student will have to attend, as a private, the prescribed government examination in order to assess and confirm abilities to allow passage to the next class.
For those families who meet the terms of enrolment required for the examination, the modality of administration of the state exams will be organised in class groups, as per prior agreements between institutions.
Families not actively comply and formalise what required in the registration forms, will have to privately and personally take action to produce the certificate of admission to the next class.
In absence of said document it will not be possible for the student to attend/enrol in the next grade.
