||Students will take 2 reading tests throughout the semester in order to evaluate their competence in this skill at the B2 level in accordance with the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR).
||Students will take 2 in-class writing tests which will be evaluated on overall impression, register and task achievement, cohesion, fluency and organization, vocabulary range and control, and grammatical range and accuracy using descriptors for the B2 level (CEFR).
||Students will take 2 listening tests throughout the semester in order to evaluate their competence in this skill at the B2 level in accordance with the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages.
|Evaluated Oral Tasks
||Students will be evaluated in 3 ways: 1 Oral Test at the beginning of term, 1 Oral presentations in the middle of the course, and one Final Oral Exam at the end of term. These tasks are evaluated in accordance with the criteria for the level as adapted from the CEFR and focusing on the delivery, the content and the language accuracy as found in the Assessment Criteria in the Moodle. The dates for these tasks are on the syllabus.
The English language courses at the UdG’s Faculty of Tourism are based on the following system of Continuous Assessment:
WORK IN PROGRESS 40%: Students are awarded 40% of their final mark by coming to all class sessions and completing the work assigned in and out of the classroom. Daily assignments given throughout the semester correspond to 6 units from the LIFE course book plus the 6 Tourism Modules on the course Moodle. Examples of work to be done include readings, writings, oral presentations, individual and group activities, videos with follow-up activities, weekly quizzes on the 4 skills (Reading, Writing, Listening & Speaking) and class debates.
EVALUATED TESTS 60%: In addition to work done in and out of class, students are awarded 60% of their final mark by taking a series of evaluated tests:
15%: Reading Test 1 (5%), Reading Test 2 (10%)
15%: Listening Test 1 (5%), Listening Test 2 (10%)
15%: Writing Test 1 (5%), Writing Test 2 (10%)
15%: 1 Oral Test (4.5%) 1 Oral Presentation (3%), 1 Oral Exam (7.5%)
In this way, each of the 4 skills have a total weight of 15%, with all 4 parts totalling 60% of the final mark.
Students must pass each of the 4 skills with a minimum mark of 5/10.
In the event a student fails one or more skills, after averaging, the highest possible mark given will be a 4/10.
Continued Assessment is calculated by WORK IN PROGRESS 40% + EVALUATED TESTS 60% = 100%
Students can retake parts of the exam which they have failed at the scheduled Examen de recuperació (see the syllabus for exact times and dates).
Criteris específics de la nota «No Presentat»:
Students who have done neither Continuous Evaluation nor the single-session evaluation will receive the mark "No presentat".

25% -Listening Test (3 Listenings per test)
25% -Writing Test (2 Writings per test)
25% -Oral Exam (4-part/9-minute individual test)
Students must pass each of the 4 skills areas with a minimum mark of 5/10. In the event a student fails one or more skills, after averaging, the highest possible mark given will be a 4/10.
