Important Information for all centres September 2014

OLA - Online Language Assessment was developed in 2010 to replace the former GOML scheme. The new scheme has been aligned to the NI Curriculum and the language content has been refreshed making it more relevant to the needs of both learners and teachers. OLA has 4 distinct levels, entry 2, entry 3, level 1 and level 2. There are 5 language pathways: French, German, Irish, Italian and Spanish. The new scheme will continue to provide language -learning goals for Key Stage 3 and for enrichment and will continue to provide motivation to language learners in the future.

Assessment Arrangements 2014 - 2015

Please note that the OLA Modern Languages scheme will be available in both the winter and summer series, 2014 - 2015.

The OLA tests are generated using the OLA online language assessment system. CCEA will continue to develop the system to modernize the assessment further, and will keep you advised of progress in this area.

For this year, however there will only be paper tests and no on-line tests.
