This is how our TEFL graduates feel they have gained from their course, and how they plan to put into action what they learned:
Despite how many teachers try to avoid them, formal exams are necessary at some point in order to determine how much the student has learned.
Oftentimes, these tests, such as the TOEFL and various diagnostic and placement tests are used to determine how much the student has learned and retained for placement in further classes, university attendance, and the workplace.
Within a course, the tests fulfill another role. Progress tests help the teacher keep track of the students' progress, while achievement tests are taken at the end of the class to determine how much the students have learned from the entire course.
With the exception of external tests, most achievement tests, and the occasional progress and placement test, the teacher often has ample control over the students' testing schedule. This allows the teacher to determine the best course for their course. It is important to monitor your students' progress, but constant testing has its own pitfalls. Namely, it mainly means that the students study and practice for the test, and not for understanding. If the teacher keeps this in mind, they can more effectively follow their students' progress.
