Monitoring Student Progress & Intervention Strategy
Monitoring Student Progress & Intervention Strategy Overview
Students are placed in classes according to their English proficiency levels (such as an IELTS score or ELC placement test). Students may be assessed upon arrival and if their level of language is lower than expected, they will be advised that extra time may be needed than stated in the original offer to achieve their language goals.
The progress of all students is formally and informally assessed during each 5 week period of study (this may be increased to each 10 week period for some courses).
When a student is deemed to be at risk of not making satisfactory course progress, they will be offered academic support. Academic support may consist of:
- Discussing strategies with teacher
- Seeing the Language Advisors
- Using the ILC resources to help improve performance in specific skill areas
- Attending free ILC workshops
- Joining conversation groups
- Participating in Bookclub
For students still at risk of not making satisfactory course progress, further intervention may be necessary, and they may discuss their case with the Student Advisors.
