DELTA teachers results & reports
The DELTA Report Every time you take the DELTA you will receive a DELTA Report on your performance. The Report can be read online through the DELTA System or downloaded for saving and printing. The DELTA Report contains the following:
  • A DELTA Measure - this is a scaled proficiency level. The higher your DELTA Measure is, the stronger your ability is in handling more challenging language items.

  • A Component Skills Profile - this shows the language skills that you are comparatively stronger or weaker in, i.e. listening, reading, grammar or vocabulary. You can then understand which language skill(s) you may need to spend more time to improve.

  • A Component Diagnostic Report - this shows the subskills of language that you were tested on and whether or not these subskills caused you problems. It is a good idea to seek the advice of your English teacher on how to make the most of your report. If you are not currently taking an English subject, then you can seek the advice of a teacher in the Centre for Independent Language Learning.

The DELTA Tracking System
  • You are asked to take the DELTA usually once a year.
  • You will be asked to set your target DELTA score the next time you take the DELTA.
  • The DELTA is taken at intervals, usually once per year. Upon receipt of each report you will be asked to set your target score for the next time you take the DELTA.
  • Each time you retake the DELTA the DELTA System remembers your previous performance(s) and provides you with test questions that are suited to your proficiency level. This will challenge you and enable you to demonstrate your proficiency.
  • The system tracks your progress and informs you of whether or not you are "on track" to meet your target DELTA Measure. The System also provides a predicted track so that you can judge whether your progress is sufficient to meet your target.
