Trainees are assessed throughout the term by assignments (lesson plans, observation tasks, practical teaching practice and written reflections) and a written exit test. The final grade is, therefore, an accumulation of continual and achievement assessment for which the minimum accepted score is 70 percent. Final course grades are NOT based on attendance, since in accordance with SCE’s attendance policy, learners must attend at least 75 percent of the class sessions in order to be allowed to take the final examination.
