Tips to passing: student evaluation

Students’ Evaluation Scheme

At Linguistic Communication we believe every student has her / his chance to make a difference by obtaining her / his class credit, regardless of where you think you’re starting from.

We do merit based evaluation.

This means that if you make the effort of sharing what you know with the class through participating, and contribute some honest yet simple research to the class, through preparing short but informative presentations, you will get that credit. Of course you must pass a final written test, but continuous assessment will have given you a serious head start !!!

We do project based evaluation.

If you feel the class is too difficult to follow, you can ask to work on a website for improving your level of language proficiency, based on the syntax map (link to map) we’ll guide you through the steps.

If you feel the class is not challenging enough, you can propose or ask to work on a project, or a dossier of specialization, alone or as a group.

On this website by running a search with the title of your class, below the class description you will find links to industry news publications where you can find current articles on the subject matter of the class.

The presentation should be about a subject relating to the content of the class.

The sources that should be used can be your company infrastructure or software environment, or a mission or task that you have accomplished as part of your internship

ex : installation of hardware or software asset, market study in view of a purchase..

If you wish, you can make a presentation or report on a news article from a trade journal such as eweek.com, cnet.com which relates to the class title and content.

You may also wish, as a way to revise material seen in a technical class, to make a report on a video found on youtube or any other such website that might relate to the class content.

Your presentation is a “deliverable”, meaning that you must bring a preparation sheet to the class that you will use as a support for your presentation. If you are not satisfied with your performance, you can decide to improve your same presentation for the next class of the module.

Ideally, you should on day n+1 expand on the presentation you made on day n, so as to create a dossier of expertise, through technical and market watch.
