No. Candidates may choose to enter a single module or any combination of modules. Each module is separately certificated so this will allow candidates to receive credit for each module successfully completed.
While candidates may to take the modules in any order, Modules Two and Three assume the candidate will have the knowledge and competences gained in the previous module(s) so for most candidates the most practical order will be from Module One through to Module Three.
Yes. Some centres may carry on delivering Delta as single course (all three modules being run concurrently by a centre). However, the distribution of content across the three modules allows centres the flexibility of offering individual modules or combination of modules for candidates who may not wish to, or need to, complete them all.
Yes. Candidates are awarded a certificate for each Delta module they pass. Achievement of a Pass in all three modules confers the status of a full Delta qualification. An overall Delta certificate will be awarded to candidates who submit evidence of a Pass in all three modules.
For a discrete Module Two course, it is estimated that about a third of the total number of learning hours should be tutor contact i.e. about 66 – 70 hours. Centres may offer blended learning packages wit a reduced number of face-face contact hours
Two assignments (one systems, one skills) are submitted to Cambridge ESOL (one from the centre, one from the assessor) and must be at pass standard or above for the candidate to be awarded Delta Module Two.
Candidates need to complete both parts of the Professional Development Assignment to gain an overall Pass in Module Two. Candidates must achieve a Pass to be eligible for an overall Merit or Distinction grade in Module Two.
The coursework report will only be referred to in the case of borderline candidates. For example if the centre submitted assignment is a Merit, and the assessor’s grade indicates a strong Pass, a Merit may be awarded if evidence to support a Merit is documented in the Coursework Record.
An overall grade is given for the Language Systems/Skills Assignments. Weighting is given to the teaching and the teaching grade is therefore primary. However, both the background essay and the teaching must pass in order for the candidate to achieve an overall Pass (or above) for the assignment.
If there is a one-grade difference between teaching and background essay, the teaching grade is awarded as the overall grade (provided the background essay is a Pass). So for example, a Systems Assignment with a Merit for the teaching and a Pass for the background essay would be graded as Merit.
A two-grade difference i.e. a Distinction for teaching and a Pass for the background assignment is a Merit overall.
If the teaching grade is only a Pass, then the overall grade cannot be higher than a Pass; so a Pass for teaching and a Merit or Distinction for the background essay is a Pass overall.
Yes, they need to comment on strengths as well to justify the course programme e.g. there might be less of an emphasis on a particular skill if this has been identified as a strength or is irrelevant to their needs or the focus of the course.
Candidates should test what needs to be tested according to the needs and the purpose for which their learners are learning English. If the course had a very specific focus e.g. academic writing skills exclusively then the focus of the testing would be on writing skills and sub-skills. The narrower the range of diagnostic assessment, the more detail of analysis would be expected i.e. less breadth and more depth of analysis if the topic chosen is narrow in terms of skills/language area.
Candidates must register and submit the Extended Assignment through a Centre. If the candidate is not following a course at the centre, then the Centre will charge the Cambridge ESOL entry fee plus their own administration fee for processing the entry.
