Giving help during the assessment

  • Read the task instructions to learners in your class if you feel that they would benefit by having them read aloud. You may read complete tasks or any part of the tasks to individuals or to whole groups.
  • Learners should not use dictionaries, nor should they have access to other reading material during the assessment.
  • If, during the assessment, learners are uncertain about any aspect of a task, you may explain by rereading the task instructions at any time.

BUT: learners should not be given assistance with their writing.

  • Do not brainstorm ideas or allow learners to discuss the writing topics.
  • Do not discuss the task requirements or give hints about how to write to the tasks.

Using these instructions

Some of the instructions are labelled READ and enclosed in boxes, like this:

Read page 2 of your task sheets. It has the assessment name and the instructions for Task A.

Please read aloud, or paraphrase, the text in the boxes.
