Exam techniques: Speaking assessments

Page 6 of 7

Some Level 3 Languages modules have speaking End of Module Assessments (EMAs).

The EMA is an individual interactive speaking test with an assessor (who is not your tutor) which takes place online that requires you to give a short presentation on your written project (2 minutes) and then to take part in a discussion with your assessor about your project (4 minutes). The test will be conducted online and usually takes place at the end of your module.

Instructions for the EMA are available on your module website.

Always check your module materials for the specific instructions you need.

The book Success with Languages, The Open University, 2005, Routledge, expands on all these ideas, especially in Chapter 9, ‘Assessment’.
