How Will I Be Assessed?
In assessing your performance, the Examiner will take into account:
- » the method, clarity, adequacy and correctness of instruction given;
- » the observation, analysis and correction of faults committed by the 'pupil';
- » your general manner.
You will be expected to maintain control of the lesson, be patient and tactful and give encouragement to the 'pupil' at all times.
"What sort of things might I fail on?"
Among the many reasons for failure, the most common are:
- » too long a briefing or one which is muddled or repetitive;
- » expecting too high a standard from the 'pupil' in the beginner or parttrained stage;
- » not instructing at a level appropriate to your pupils needs (over or under instructing)
- » inability to recommence instruction at a different point or to go back and explain again failure to detect faults
- » treating a 'pupil' as a novice in the trained stage;
- » inability to adjust the content level of the lesson to match the 'pupils' knowledge;
- » dealing with pedestrian crossings;
- » giving correct signals in a clear and unmistakable manner;
- » overtaking, meeting, crossing the path of and allowing adequate clearance for other road users.
