The Initial Assessment should be carried out BEFORE learners start the programme. It is designed to help you decide whether the English My Way programme is suitable for your learners. The programme is intended for very low level learners who have little or no English Language skills.
Higher level learners, for example those at Entry level 1 and above, should be steered towards an Entry Level ESOL Skills for Life programme rather than English My Way.
There are two versions of the assessment: one for learners and one for teachers/volunteers. One has a rationale and scoring interpretation and the other does not. The students should be given the version without the information for teachers.
