Enhanced Services and Changes in the BCCE & ALCE
Enhanced services and changes in the Basic Communication Certificate in English (BCCE) και Advanced Level Certificate in English (ALCE)
We are pleased to announce a series of improvements and new services which will be introduced over the next two years (2010 – 2011) for the BCCE and ALCE.
The improvements and new services are being developed in accordance with the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR), are based on extensive research and modern testing theory and come after consultations with the educational community, language school owners and EFL teachers.
The changes meet the evolving needs of BCCE and ALCE candidates. The following table presents some of the most important changes and the time framework in which they will be applied.
|New Result Reports that use a scale of 0-30 units per examining section
|Rescoring Service for the Writing section that will include detailed information concerning the performance of the candidates by using extracts from their essays
|Recordings of all oral ALCE and BCCE tests and Rescoring Service for the Speaking Test of ALCE and BCCE
In order to better inform the members of the educational community about these improvements, the Hellenic American Union will be scheduling training seminars and distributing support material for teachers.
For more information regarding the new services and changes, consult the ORFEAS platform (http://orfeas.hau.gr/), which the Hellenic American Union has created specifically for Language School Owners and EFL teachers.
