Assessment methods and criteria

Class participation

Completion of assignments

Completion of the final exam


The exam has a written section on a trade text and trade terminology.


If the student is unable to attend instruction because of extenuating circumstances (internship, competitions, serious health problems), the instructor must be contacted to supply the materials and set a appointment for consultation. Otherwise, the student may not receive credit nor sit a test.

Only CJP tests from the last three years will be recognized. Tests from other schools or other English certificates do not release students from the requirement of sitting an appropriate test.
