These can be short tasks taking a lesson or span several weeks to produce the finished product. Instead of a written exam students work is marked by their teacher following strict guidelines.
MFL Assessment Speaking Reading Students have to speak for 4 to 6 minutes on a given topic and answer questions about it. Lots of preparation time is allowed to this in class beforehand. Students are given a set text in a foreign language. They answer questions in either in that language or in English, as required.
MFL Assessment Writing Listening Students plan a piece of writing on a given topic and given word count in class. They are then timed to produce this work independently. Students are given a booklet of questions to answer whilst listening to an audio play of a speaker in a foreign language.

They check that the teacher assessment has been carried out accurately and that all mark schemes have been followed fairly.
