3. Access and log into the Erasmus+ OLS website Before being able to access the Erasmus+ OLS language assessments, you need to activate your user account. You should have received an automated e-mail containing your login credentials. Just follow the link provided in the e-mail to activate your account. To log in, enter the Login and the Password you received by e-mail from your sending institution/organisation. Once you have activated your Erasmus+ OLS account go to the following URL: www.erasmusplusols.eu to access the Erasmus+ OLS home page. To access the login page, click on the Login button in the upper right corner of your screen.

Copyright © 2015 ALTISSIA International S.A. All rights reserved.

If you don't remember your password, click on the “Forgot your password?” link.

If you encounter problems, contact the Erasmus+ OLS technical support team by clicking on "Contact us" in the upper right-hand corner of your screen.

5

Copyright © 2015 ALTISSIA International S.A. All rights reserved.

4. Complete your Erasmus+ OLS profile Once logged in, you are asked to edit your profile and complete it with your personal information as well as those details about your Erasmus+ mobility (type of mobility, country of destination, start and end date of your mobility period). Fields marked with a red asterisk * are mandatory (all fields are mandatory). The language of the assessment you are going to take, indicated under the label “Language to test”, has been selected by your sending institution/organisation as the main language of instruction for your mobility period. You cannot modify this field. If you believe this language is incorrect, please stop completing your profile and get in contact with your sending institution/organisation immediately.

6

Copyright © 2015 ALTISSIA International S.A. All rights reserved.

The “Local Language” field may be displayed on your profile page. The “Local Language” may be selected by your sending institution/organisation if you have obtained a result between CEFR levels B2 and C2 in your first language assessment. This option is only possible if the local language of your country of mobility is different from your main language of instruction/work and provided that this language is available in the OLS. Please note that the “Local Language” only concerns the language courses, not the language assessments. Therefore, the final language assessment is in the same language as the first language assessment since this is your main language of instruction/work. If your result in the first language assessment is between CEFR levels A1 and B1, you are assigned the same language as your first and final assessments for the language courses (your main language of instruction/work). In this case, no “Local Language” is indicated in this field in your user profile. Additionally, you need to update the dates of your mobility period. The estimated dates of mobility are important as they determine the date of your final language assessment. Please pay particular attention to the date of return and note that your mobility cannot exceed 13 months.

7

Copyright © 2015 ALTISSIA International S.A. All rights reserved.

Please also enter your time zone, since - at a later stage - this might become important for the tutoring sessions, if you are selected by your sending institution/organisation to attend the OLS online language course. Therefore you should indicate the time zone in which you will be studying or working during your mobility. Before clicking on "Save these modifications" you should read the 'Legal Notice' on data protection. You must accept the terms on data protection and data privacy before saving your profile, otherwise you will be unable to proceed. If you would like to modify the password that you have received by e-mail, click on “Change password”.

Once you have completed your profile, click on "Save these modifications" to continue. Please note that you need to complete your profile before starting the language assessment.

5. Access the Erasmus+ OLS language assessment Once you have completed your profile, an introductory page to the language assessment is displayed. If you need to modify your profile, click on "Edit profile", in the top left corner of the screen.

Before having taken the first language assessment, this ‘Welcome’ page contains a series of information such as: •

The duration of your language assessment;



The composition of the language assessment you will take, i.e. grammar, vocabulary, key communicative phrases, listening comprehension and reading comprehension;



The difficulty level in which your language assessment progresses (via "computerised adaptive testing", the difficulty level of the entire assessment adapts to the mobility participant's ability level);



Some advice on how to perform the language assessment comfortably.

After having taken your first or final language assessment, only the results of your latest language assessment are displayed on the screen, without any feedback on your assessment performance (number of right and/or wrong answers).

Copyright © 2015 ALTISSIA International S.A. All rights reserved.

The

There are a number of buttons on the welcome page:



By clicking on “Start my first language assessment” at the top of the page, you can start your first assessment.



After having taken your first language assessment, you can access the results by clicking on "My first language assessment results".

10

Copyright © 2015 ALTISSIA International S.A. All rights reserved.



On your welcome page, you will find a notification informing you of when your final language assessment will be available. Once it is available, you will be able to start it by clicking the button labelled “Start my final language assessment”. You are required to complete this final language assessment at the end of your Erasmus+ mobility, in order to check the progress made in your language competence during your stay abroad. There is no difference between the first Erasmus+ OLS language assessment (prior to mobility) and the final Erasmus+ OLS language assessment (at the end of your mobility). The questions may be different as the assessment is adaptive. Since both assessments are based on the same principles, your improvement of language skills during your mobility period can be measured.



After having completed your final language assessment, you can access the results by clicking on "My final language assessment results".



If you have been invited to follow an OLS language course, you can access the course by clicking on the "Start my language course" button.



At the end of your mobility period (as indicated in your OLS user profile) you can access your record of participation by clicking on "My record of participation" for the OLS language course.

On the following page, the system will check the compatibility of your computer. While on the “Compatibility of your equipment” page, please remember to choose your interface language for your language assessment (the language that the instructions will be shown in – 24 languages are available) as you will not be able to change this language during the language assessment.

11

Copyright © 2015 ALTISSIA International S.A. All rights reserved.

Once the compatibility check is done and your configuration matches the minimal specifications, click on “Start the language assessment”. After the compatibility check, the system tests your audio configuration. Click on "Click to listen" to check if your loudspeakers or headphones play the audio sample correctly. (Please make sure your speakers are turned on).

You should click on "Yes" if the sound test worked. In the event that the audio test failed you should click on "No" and another message will appear including a list of actions for setting up the audio.

12

Copyright © 2015 ALTISSIA International S.A. All rights reserved.

After clicking on "Yes" and then on "continue", you can finally start your language assessment.

13

6. Perform the Erasmus+ OLS language assessment The online language assessment, with a total of 70 questions, includes the following sections: 1.

Grammar (20 questions)

2.

Vocabulary (15 questions)

3.

Key communicative phrases (15 questions)

4.

Listening comprehension (10 questions)

5.

Reading comprehension (10 questions)

The average time taken to perform the assessment is approximately 40 to 50 minutes. However, there is no time limit and you may take as long as you wish to complete the assessment. These sections aim to evaluate your communicative competence as well as your grammatical, semantic, lexical and spelling skills in an integrated manner. At any moment during the assessment you can save and continue later, although only completed sections are saved, therefore for any sections that you have only partially completed your answers will be lost. If you have to quit the language assessment, or if you experience a technical problem, you will be able to re-start it from the beginning of the section you were at previously. Keep in mind that once you have selected your answer and clicked on "continue", you will not be able to go back to the previous question for revision. If you don’t know the answer to a question, click on “continue” and carry on with your assessment without selecting an answer.

6.1

Grammar

The first section assesses your grammatical competence. This grammar section includes two types of exercises: multiple choice and cloze test questions (a gap-filling task), and comprises 20 questions. The example below shows a multiple choice exercise in which you have to choose the right option from a list of terms by clicking on the small circle beside each option. Then, you click on "continue" to move to the next question. In the top right corner of the screen, you can view the difficulty level of each question: it will increase or decrease in complexity to suit your language level. The system starts, by default, with a question situated at level A2 (CEFR). At the bottom of the page, you can check the

14

Copyright © 2015 ALTISSIA International S.A. All rights reserved.

progress of your assessment. Each filled cell indicates the number of answered questions. The progress bar shows the 5 sections you will have to go through to complete your assessment.

The next screenshot shows the other type of exercise used in this section: the cloze test. According to the context and the meaning of the extract, you will have to type in, by clicking on the blank(s), the right form in number (and/or gender depending on the variables of the selected study language) for: •

nouns



articles



adjectives



pronouns.

You will also be asked to insert: •

the right tense and conjugated form of the verbs (depending on the variables of the selected study language)



15

the right prepositions and adverbs.

For each section completed, you will be notified as indicated below:

16



the part (Grammar, Vocabulary, etc.) that you have finished



the number of remaining parts



the next section you will have to go through.

Copyright © 2015 ALTISSIA International S.A. All rights reserved.

6.2

Vocabulary

The second section evaluates your lexical competence by means of the vocabulary section, consisting of 15 questions. Like the previous section, you will have to answer multiple choice and cloze ("gap-filling") questions, by choosing the right term (noun, adjective, verb, pronoun, or preposition) with reference to a given context.

The vocabulary section also includes questions testing your basic general knowledge:

17

Copyright © 2015 ALTISSIA International S.A. All rights reserved.

6.3

Key communicative phrases

The third section, consisting of 15 questions, assesses your communication skills. The ability to use the language correctly and appropriately in order to accomplish communication goals is assessed here by means of multiple-choice questions. The aim is to evaluate how you interact in the target language through a series of short dialogues. Again, you will have to choose the right answer from a set of given options:

Or you will have to pick the most suitable question to a given answer:

18

Copyright © 2015 ALTISSIA International S.A. All rights reserved.

6.4

Listening comprehension

The fourth section, consisting of 10 questions, assesses your listening comprehension skills. Each question is based on an audio extract. You can check your playback device by clicking on the speaker icon on the right-hand side of the introductory screen. To listen to the track, click on the speaker. You will be able to listen to each audio extract a maximum of 3 times.

We advise that you read the list of proposed options at least once. Each exercise is in the form of a multiple-choice test based on a short dialogue. Among the possible tasks to accomplish, and according to the difficulty level at which you are working, you will have to choose the appropriate sentence that exemplifies, by means of a rephrased sentence, the main point or an aspect of the audio extract. For example, the transcript of the exercise below is: "Speaker: Jim, how long do you spend on the computer every day? - Jim: usually 4 hours during the week but I don't work on it at the weekend":

19

Or you will simply have to identify a word or a phrase used in the dialogue as shown in the two screenshots below:

20

This section once again assesses your communication skills in the sense that you will have to choose the appropriate response to a question contextually. Here the audio extract says, "How are you, Howard?":

You might be asked to identify the communication context of a conversation, indicated by a series of elements (dial tone, the type of language used: "Charles speaking", etc.):

6.5

Reading comprehension

The final section, consisting of 10 questions, aims to evaluate your ability to understand a written passage of a text. Vocabulary knowledge and text comprehension are the other two abilities being assessed here. According to the level of difficulty you are at, the type of passages presented (newspaper and advertisement excerpts, situation descriptions, dialogue extracts, literary passages) may be more clearly articulated and refer to more specific contexts:

Here you will have to understand the vocabulary in context – your knowledge on a particular subject is not tested – and find the right answer according to the similarity in meaning between two terms or between a term and its phrasal form and vice versa:

By clicking on "Save and print your evaluation report" you will be able to print out a screenshot of your assessment results.

You will also be able to download a PDF file of your results on your welcome page by clicking on the “My first language assessment results” button, situated at the top of the page. Please also keep in mind that you cannot repeat your language assessment once you have completed it and received your results. This might be a good opportunity to make the most of your assessment. We recommend you update your CV with your recent language level. At the bottom of the page, you will find a link to the Europass page in order to compile your own Europass Curriculum Vitae or download the CV template to complete later on.

Instructions on how to fill out your Europass CV or Language Passport

You will be asked to fill in a form indicating your native language. In the section below, "other languages", you should insert the language for which you have been assessed (and/or any other languages that you may know by means of self-assessment) and the results obtained in your language assessment. By clicking on one of the language skills, you can add your level scores by scrolling through a drop-down list that includes the descriptors of the CEFR.

25

Copyright © 2015 ALTISSIA International S.A. All rights reserved.

Only you and the institution/organisation in charge of your selection or coordinating your EVS project will receive the results of your language assessment. For Higher Education students and trainees, results will not be communicated to the receiving institution/organisation. For EVS volunteers and VET learners, results will not be communicated automatically to other organisation(s) in the project.

26

Copyright © 2015 ALTISSIA International S.A. All rights reserved.

The results of the Erasmus+ OLS language assessments do not prevent anyone from taking part in the Erasmus+ mobility programme. Results may be used by the sending institution/coordinating organisation to identify the participants most in need of linguistic support. At the end of your Erasmus+ mobility period, you are required to complete another language assessment to check the progress made in your language competence during your stay abroad. On your welcome page, you will find a notification informing you of when your final language assessment will be available.

Once it is available, you will be able to start it by clicking on the “Start my final language assessment” button at the top of your home page. There is no difference between the first Erasmus+ OLS language assessment (prior to mobility) and the final Erasmus+ OLS language assessment (at the end of your mobility). The questions might be different as the assessment is adaptive. Since both assessments are based on the same principles, your improvement of language skills during your mobility period can be measured. You will be able to download the PDF file of your final language assessment results by clicking on the “My final language assessment results” button, located on your welcome page. There are no negative repercussions if your language level has not changed during your Erasmus+ mobility programme. If your language level has not changed during your stay abroad, it will have no direct, negative consequences on your participation in the Erasmus+ programme – however, to make the most of your stay abroad, you should be dedicated to learning the language of your work, studies or volunteering. The European Commission might use aggregated data of language assessment results for statistical purposes.
