Student Assessment

 


 

Assessment for Adults

As a student you are assessed throughout each course as follows:

A1 through C2 courses

At the end of the course, you receive a final percentage grade, composed of an average written grade and an average oral grade, each calculated as follows:

  • Average written grade: Two edited versions of level writing 20%, one progress mid-term test 40%, and one achievement test (final test) 40%.
  • Average oral grade: Attendance and class participation 20%, performance in two in-class oral tasks 40% each

To successfully complete the course and be able to advance to the next course in the program, you are expected to have a final grade of 70% or above. The final grade is calculated by adding the average written grade (essays, mid-term test, and final test) to the average oral grade (attendance and class participation, oral tasks) and dividing by two. For example, a student receiving 65% as the average written grade and 75% as the average oral grade would receive a final grade of 70%: (65% + 75%) / 2 = 70%.

Speaking Skills Courses

At the end of the course, you receive a final percentage grade which is composed of the following average grades: attendance 20%, class participation 30%, and one in-class presentation 50%.

In order to successfully complete the course and be able to advance to the next oral-skills course in the program, you are expected to have a final grade of 70% or above.

BCCE Preparation, ECCE Preparation, ALCE Preparation, ECPE Preparation courses

At the end of the course, you receive a final percentage grade, composed of an average written grade and an average oral grade, each calculated as follows:

  • Average written grade: Two edited versions of level writing 20%, one mid-term mock examination 40%, and one final mock examination 40%.
  • Average oral grade: Attendance and class participation 20%, performance in two in-class mock interviews 40% each

In order to successfully complete the course, you are expected to have a final grade of 70% or above. The final grade is calculated by adding the average written grade (essays, mid-term mock examination, and final mock examination) to the average oral grade (attendance and class participation, mock interviews) and dividing by two. For example, if a student receives 65% as average written grade and 75% as average oral grade, the final grade is calculated as follows: (65% + 75%)/2 = 70%.

TOEFL iBT®, GMAT®, GRE®, and TOEIC® courses

You do not receive a final percentage grade at the end of the course. However, your progress is recorded as follows: One mock examination used as diagnostic test, one mid-term mock examination used as a progress test, and one final mock examination used as an exit test. 

Assessment for Young Learners and Adolescents

Language Courses for Young Learners and Adolescents

Throughout the academic year, students receive three progress reports, at the end of each non-intensive term (October-December, December-March, and March-May). Each progress report includes two percentage grades for the term in question, an average written grade and an average oral grade. Each of these average grades is calculated as follows:

  • Average written grade: Two level writing tasks 20%, one quiz 40%, and one progress test 40%.
  • Average oral grade: Attendance and class participation 20%, and performance in two in-class oral tasks 40% each.

Progress Quizzes are given after the completion of every two-coursebook units.

In order to successfully complete the course and be able to advance to the next course in the program, a student is expected to have a final grade of 70% or above. The final grade is calculated by adding the three average written grades and dividing by 3, by adding the three average oral grades and dividing by 3, and by adding the resulting oral and written grades and dividing by 2.

For example, if a student receives 65%, 70%, and 75% as average written grades for each term, and 70%, 75%, and 80% as average oral grades for each term, the final grade is calculated as follows: 65% + 70% + 75% : 3 = 70%, 70% + 75% + 80% : 3 = 75%, 70% + 75% : 2 = 72.5%.

Exam Preparation Courses

At the end of the course, students will receive a final percentage grade, composed of an average written grade and an average oral grade, each calculated as follows:

  • Average written grade: Two edited versions of level writing 20%, one mid-term mock examination 40%, and one final mock examination 40%.
  • Average oral grade: Attendance and class participation 20%, performance in two in-class mock interviews 40% each

In order to successfully complete the course, a student is expected to have a final grade of 70% or above. The final grade is calculated by adding the average written grade to the average oral grade and dividing by 2. For example, if a student receives 65% as average written grade and 75% as average oral grade, the final grade is calculated as follows: 65% + 75% : 2 = 70%.
