Delta revision tests for Module One, Paper 2


The following provides a general test for each task on Paper 2 of the Module One examination.  You should get almost everything right.  If you have particular difficulty with any area, try that section of the Delta Module One revision course.

The tasks in Paper 2 ask for more extended answers drawing on your knowledge of the principles and practice in ELT and is particularly concerned with discovering:

  1. Whether you understand and can apply the principles of assessment
    In Task 1 you will be presented with a test or an extract from one and be asked to comment on it in terms of its effectiveness for the stated use.
  2. Whether you can critically evaluate teaching materials
    In Task 2, you are given an extract from a coursebook.
    Your mission is:
    1. to work out what the purpose of the activities and stages in the material are
    2. how they combine
    3. to figure out what the author(s) believe.  In other words, what the assumptions about language and learning are that underlie the design of the material
  3. Whether you can apply your background knowledge to discuss 'best practice' in ELT
    In Task 3 you get an extract or two from something such as a methodology or resource book, a lesson plan, a discussion of a lesson or tutor feedback.
    Your task is to answer a series of questions about it based on your knowledge of approaches, methods, theories, resources and roles.

The links below take you to generalised tests in these three areas.
