This course uses English proficiency assessment to ensure students enter the course with adequate language to make sufficient growth in their English skills to access future pathways at AIS. Student progress is monitored through a range of assessment data including ongoing course assessment, student approaches to learning and additional English Proficiency assessments. This assessment data is a major factor in determing if the student has met the standard of the course for graduation. As part of the course assessment, students receive daily individualised feedback in the form of classroom learning engagements, homework, quizzes, and tests in order to accurately monitor the progress of our students. The course also utilizes a variety of online tools designed to effectively track improvements in key skills of reading, writing, listening and speaking.
