|Assessment for all Levels of Math and Science Teacher Training
Throughout the English for Math and Science Teacher Training courses, students are evaluated continuously through regular intervals, in addition to an end-of-term final assessment task. This is done through a variety of tasks that include role playing, monologues and presentations, lesson plans and writing a test. Final grades are not based on attendance, since in accordance with the SCE’s attendance policy, students must attend at least 75 percent of the class sessions in order to be allowed to take the final assessment task, which is based on what they have been practicing throughout the term. Trainees pass a course when completing its outcomes with a minimum score of 70 percent.
