DELTA institutions DELTA for teaching and learning
The DELTA is a measurement of English language proficiency that is tracked over a period of time and as such can be a useful learning tool for students, especially if teachers work closely with their students to help them establish individualized learning pathways based on the diagnostic feedback in the DELTA Report. By discussing the Report with their teacher, students can prioritise areas for self-study. Teachers can also help their students to select the appropriate learning materials to address their relative areas of weakness.

  • for placement into streams for English language enhancement provision
  • to provide students with information on which to base their choice of elective English language enhancement programmes
