|The assessment details are as follows:
** The Putonghua and English Language speaking assessments will be video-recorded to facilitate the processing of irregularities during the assessment.
*** The Classroom Language Assessment (CLA) paper takes the form of lesson observation lasting for a single period by one assessor. Candidates are assessed once with about 40% of them receiving a second assessment visit by another assessor in order to verify the actual attainment of various CLA standards. At the beginning of the assessment period (from 7 November 2016 (Monday) to 9 December 2016 (Friday)), a number of candidates will receive a paired visit in which two assessors observe the same period.
The date of the CLA will be assigned by the assessors. Candidates will receive notification at least five days before the assessment. The first lesson observation is expected to complete before March 2017. If the candidates do not receive notification for the first lesson observation by 24 February 2017 (Friday), they should contact the Language Teacher Qualifications Team of the EDB at 2892 5783 before 5:00 pm on 27 February 2017 (Monday).
