Výukové metody
A written test and an oral examination.
Metody hodnocení
The examination consists of two parts: a written test and an oral examination. In order to be able to take the oral part of the exam, students must achieve a minimum score of 60% in the written test.
The written test as part of a standardized exam is based on upper-intermediate grammar and IT field relevant vocabulary. It consists of Listening, Reading, Grammar and Vocabulary, and writing sections. Students may be exempt from the written part of the exam (but must still take the oral part) if they are holdres of the following certificates: Cambridge English: First (previously FCE), Advanced (previously CAE), Proficiency (previously CPE); IELTS band score 5.5/6.5 or higher; TOEFL iBT Total score 87 or higher. Secondary school exams (i.e. "maturita") are not accepted. Students must submit their certificate (the original plus a copy) to the CJV FI head one month prior to the start of the exam period in which they wish to take VB001.
The oral examination has two parts: a presentation delivered by heart on an IT-related topic in front of an audience and a discussion based on one of the presentations. To facilitate the discussion, students must prepare a handout to complement their presentations. The following criteria are taken into consideration for the presentation part, so students are strongly advised to bear them in mind while presenting: good content, clear structure, good conclusion, usage of signposting, correct usage of English (self-correction is possible and welcomed), relevant range of vocabulary and correct pronunciation (avoiding irritating mistakes), stress and intonation, quality and language of visuals and references (excluding Wikipedia), eye contact with the audience and proper body language, good timing, handling the Q&A session and overall impression (fun, passion, expertise, effort..., fluency, attire). For the discussion, students are expected to bring a good-quality handout (FI unified visual style, goal of presentation, bullet points, a question for discussion) and to take an active part in the discussion. This includes turn-taking, negotiating, agreeing and disagreeing using relevant and appropriate language. The entire group is also awarded a point if they reach a conclusion.
The level of the exam is B2 of the Common European Framework (Upper Intermediate).
