The course is structured by a series of tasks that address the various aspects of each unit. These tasks will be completed and assessed as you progress through the course and include tasks such as:
Your trainer will give you guidance on how to complete the assessment tasks and also provide you with feedback on your assessment tasks throughout the course.
Unless a special exemption applies, all LTi TESOL Course students are required to submit their assessment via the LTi TESOL On-line Student System (TOSS).
The assessment is competency based. This means that you will be graded as 'competent' (C) or 'not yet competent' (NYC). If you are graded NYC you will be given another opportunity for reassessment and will be provided with specific feedback on areas needing improvement. You need to be assessed as competent in all of the assessment tasks in order to be awarded your qualification.
Both the Certificate IV and Diploma courses have holistic assessment. This means that students must complete all assessment for the whole course to be awarded the full qualification (except for Unit 1 - TESCIE001 -Create a culturally inclusive learning culture, and Unit 9 - TESDRF001- Develop Resource Files).
Students must also complete Practical Placement in order to be awarded the full qualification.
If a student withdraws from the course after completing the theory of the course, but before they have completed all practical placement, then they may be awarded a few units of competency (depending on assessment items completed).
