Some assessments in this course will require students to interact with other participants, where they will perform a specific role during the assessment. These participants can be co-workers, family or friends. For one assessment, students will require access to a volunteer who can speak a second language, as well as an interpreter who will be able to interpret that language for the student in an interview scenario.
