Cambridge expert talks about writing skills assessment

On November 22, the seminar “Assessment of Writing Test” was held by the trainer of the Cambridge Certification Center Claire Barnes. The problems of the scientific seminar included questions related both to difficulties in teaching students writing in English, and to the peculiarities of preparing, passing and evaluating the written tests of the Cambridge exams (B2-C1).

Students were presented with the problems of writing skills in Russian students, as well as the most important aspects that teachers should pay attention to when teaching students writing.

“Should I find fault with spelling when teaching writing? I guess I will disappoint you, but Cambridge examiners do not! We do not correct spelling errors if the meaning of the sentence is clear. ” During the discussion, Claire Barnes gave a number of practical recommendations, as well as examples of working out writing skills.

In 2017, RUDN University scientists constructed a new explicit second-order precision difference scheme using modern computer algebra methods for 2-dimensional Navier-Stokes equations (NSE) [1]. This year, our mathematicians used a new scheme [2] to construct a numerical solution to the Cauchy problem with initial data (for t=0) as satisfying the continuity equation. Scientists managed to achieve previously unattainable accuracy of the continuity equation.

The Day of Russian Science in RUDN

Being a scientist means creating a better future for the country and the world! RUDN scientists set ambitious goals for themselves, conduct advanced scientific research, make discoveries and bring Russian technologies to foreign markets. They have at their disposal more than 200 laboratories with modern high—tech equipment. Every year, RUDN holds more than 150 international scientific events, and university scientists patent about 100 new developments. Advances in research — from new cancer treatments to “cleaning up” space debris — are designed to improve human life.
