How STYLE 1 is scored

The results of STYLE 1 are given for each of the four sections: Listening, Reading and Use of Language, Writing, and Speaking. Candidates receive a scaled score for each section expressed as a number of dolphins between one and five, with one dolphin as the lowest scoring result and five dolphins as the highest scoring result.

There is no pass or fail for the test and no overall score given. Candidates who receive a result of three, four or five dolphins for the four sections on the test are considered to be ready to proceed to the next level.

The Writing Section 

The Writing Section is scored out of a total of nine marks. There are three criteria: Task Completion, Organization, and Linguistic Resources.

Each criterion provides between one and three marks: a candidate below the level for a criterion receives a score of 1 for that criterion; a candidate at the level receives a 2; while a candidate above the level receives a 3. 

The number of marks is added together to give a total score out of nine. Candidates receive between one and five symbols which shows their scale-score achievement for the Writing Section.

The raters have been trained and certified according to Hellenic American University standards.

The Speaking Section

The Speaking Section is scored out of a total of nine marks. There are three criteria: Task Completion, Fluency and Interaction, and Linguistic Resources.

The number of marks is added together to give a total score out of nine. Candidates receive between one and five symbols which shows their scale-score achievement for the Speaking Section.
