1st years
Hello, I am the assessor.
I will listen to you and give you a mark.
Hello, my job is to talk to you and to get you to speak.
When you are quiet or don't have anything to say, does this mean that your English is not up to scratch?

We grade the 1st years holistically.

Students who receive "Good" must show

the same
speaking ability.
Use your "gut feeling" to establish which mark you should give to the first student.
Cambridge students
What might hinder you from giving a fair mark ?

You don't listen to the conversations carefully.
Your marks don't match the speaking ability of the 1st years.
You are not consistent.
The conversations are too short.
You are tired.
We need your help to set up the "Taaldorp".
