“Frequent assessments for Thai language learners and feedback are essential not only for students to gain insight into their learning and their understanding, but also serves as a guide to help me monitor and continuously improve the quality of the teaching and learning programmes being offered.”
There are two common assessment methods:
Performanced-Based Assessments are based on classroom instruction and activities which designed to focus on assessing speaking, listening and comprehension skills. These classroom activities may include:
- Role playing
- Debating and giving opinions
- Retelling stories or events
- Telling a story using pictures
- Completing dialogue or conversation through written prompts
- Brainstorming exercises
Portfolio Assessments are based on completing homework assignments which designed to focus on assessing vocabulary knowledge, grammar and language structures comprehension. These homework assignments may include:
- Writing a short essay or story
- Providing descriptions
- Completing exercise sheets
End of Course Examination for each level is normally 2 hours long and consists of the following modules:
- Listening and Comprehension Test
- Grammar and Language Structures Test
- Speaking Test
- Reading and Writing Test (optional)
Certificate is awarded to students who have produced satisfactory work throughout the course and have passed a minimum of 60% of the total numbers of modules forming an examination set. There are two two grades available:
- Grade A: 80% – 100%
- Grade B: 60% – 79%
The Certificate is designed to not only to motivate you by recognising the great things you do, but also how much I appreciate your effort!
