Assessment

Assessment at DELTA Module Two takes place throughout the course in an authorised centre by way of delivering lessons (LSA) and writing courseworks and essays.

LSA (Language Systems/Skills Assignment) — is an assignment that includes a lesson with a specific focus, which can be aimed at developing language skills (Speaking, Listening, Writing, Reading) or systems (Grammar, Lexis, Phonology, Discourse).

During the course, you deliver 4 lessons 45–60 minutes each, three out of which are assessed by the course tutors, and the fourth one is assessed by an external Cambridge Assessor.

While preparing for each lesson, you need to conduct research and write a paper of 2,500 words (a background essay), which will be the background for the lesson aimed at developing a certain skill or system. You also have to prepare an elaborate lesson plan.

After delivering a lesson, you conduct analysis of your work, where you identify your strengths and weaknesses, the result of your actions, and suggest ideas on further improvement.
During the course, you also have to write a Professional Development Assignment, which consists of two written tasks:

  • Reflection & Action (2000–2500 words)
  • Experimental Practice (1500–2000 words)
