Question 1 1.

Imagine you are taking the OET exam, reading section Part B. What implicit/underlying meaning can be discerned from the following passages?

Passage 1: ''Provision of safe water and sanitation
The school environment may damage the health and nutritional status of school children, particularly if it increases their exposure to hazards such as infectious disease carried by the water supply. Hygiene education is meaningless without clean water and adequate sanitation facilities. A realistic goal in most countries is to ensure that all schools have access to clean water and sanitation. By providing these facilities, schools can reinforce the health and hygiene messages, and act as an example to both students and the wider community. This in turn can lead to a demand for similar facilities from the community.''

Passage 2: ''School-based health and nutrition services
Schools can effectively deliver some health and nutritional services provided that the services are simple, safe and familiar, and address problems that are prevalent and recognised as important within the community. If these criteria are met then the community sees that teacher and school more positively, and teachers perceive themselves as playing important roles. For example, micronutrient deficiencies and worm infections may be effectively dealt with by infrequent (six-monthly or annual) oral treatment; changing timing of meals or providing a snack to address short term hunger during school - an important constraint on learning; and providing spectacles will allow some children to fully participate in class for the first time. ''

Question 2 2.

Based on the following passage, the author would recommend which of the following provisions?

Water and Sanitation Safety

Water is a well-known carrier of disease. Guaranteeing safe and sanitary facilities for students, staff, and faculty should be a priority in schools. In addition, schools should also implement hygiene education, which reinforces the importance of sanitation and clean water. The construction and maintenance of school facilities can be bolstered by a sound health and hygiene policy.

Question 3 3.

Imagine that you're taking the OET and you are presented this with document in Part A of the reading section. What type of document is being presented?

''Health Education Standards
Nationwide, 90.2% of states had adopted national or state health education standards, and 74.0% had adopted health education standards that were based on the 2007 National Health Education Standards (NHES). At least 87% of states had adopted standards for elementary, middle, and high school health education that specifically addressed each of the NHES (Table 1).''
