Task 1 – English Diagnostic Activity

To personalise study support services at Deakin College, we use an English Diagnostic Activity. It is not a
test. It is an activity to help you see what you might find difficult in your studies at College and how we can
help you be successful.

This exercise is required and all new students must attempt it.

What is it?

        A 30-minute online exercise to show you (and us) what you might need help with.
        This is not assessing your English language ability, but it is an exercise using various academic skills
         designed for both native English speakers and English as an alternate language (EAL) speakers.
        There are 38 required questions, which are mostly multiple choice.
Steps:

    1. Use this link: https://forms.gle/59DxQAAEn1w37hcu7 (Chrome works best).
    2. Have a look at your results and feedback (bookmark the results page to access info later).
    3. Contact a Student Learning Advisor if you need help.
Why is it important?

Throughout your time at Deakin College, you will be expected to participate in class discussions and
presentations, listen and take notes in lectures, and research and write assignments and exams. These are
all skills that require a good understanding of academic English. Improving your language skills will help you
to get better grades in assignments and exams.

The results

The results will not affect your grades at Deakin College and do not appear on your academic transcript.
They are used to identify areas for help and improvement. You will get emails throughout the trimester with
suggestions of ways to improve your academic English.

What academic support does Deakin College offer?

        One-on-one appointments with the Student Learning Advisors:
         https://studentlearningadvisors.setmore.com/
        Study Skills workshops

Before you choose your subjects please read these instructions
It is important to look at your letter of offer carefully before selecting your subjects.

The Letter of Offer provides information on your pathway. The Letter of Offer was sent to you congratulating you
on your acceptance into Deakin College. The letter of offer looks like this:

Some students will be going from Foundation to a Diploma course and then to Deakin University to complete a
Bachelor Degree. Other students will have been provided the chance to go from Foundation directly to Deakin
University to complete the bachelor degree. These students may have specific subjects they need to complete.

There are two sections you must check:

Provisional Offer 2 and Conditions of this offer and/or explanatory notes.

The above example shows a student with a direct 2nd stage path to Diploma so they would follow the regular
course subject example in their stream.

If you have Deakin University and a Bachelor Degree listed in your Provisional Offer 2 section then please check
the Conditions of this offer and/or explanatory notes section for instructions of specific subjects you must choose.
Your degree identification code which will be a letter with 3 numbers following it (example S460) and will be
listed in the course section of the offer may have a separate course guide page for it. Please ask for assistance to
find this in the following pages.

                                                                                                           21
