"Siempre autónoma. Por mi patria educaré."

 

ISE examinations test all four language skills –speaking, writing, listening and Reading. They are available at five key levels wich are linked to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR).

The asseement is about how the four skills integrate with each other. Each ISE level has the same overall assessment structure. There are three components to the examination.

Portfolio: a collection of the student’s work, the portfolio is an opportunity for candidates to present to Trinity examiners the best work they can produce rather than the best they can produce on a single occasion in the exam room. The portfolio is learned-led-students are able to draw on a number of resources.

Controlled written examination: this is taken under formal examination conditions at a registered centre. The tasks are relevant to a range of learners – young and mature – and are appropriate in a variety of cultural contexts.

Interview: this is a face-to-face conversation with a Trinity examiner who comes from the UK, this component is very similar to the Trinity GESE examination.
