This is how our TEFL graduates feel they have gained from their course, and how they plan to put into action what they learned:
In unit 15 we learned about evaluation and testing in EFL classes. We learned about five specific types of examinations and when to use and how they should be used properly. These five types of exams are: placement tests, diagnostic tests, progress tests, practice tests, and external tests. Placement tests are given at the beginning of EFL courses to determine the level and ability of a student prior to commencing a course. Diagnostic tests are similiar to placement test but usually more in-depth. Progress tests are used periodically throughout a course to assess the information students have retained up to a specific point and what needs to be re-addressed. Practice tests are used to prepare students for external exams; and external exams are generally official proficiency exams- usually given outside of language schools. Like most other topics, tests and assessments should not be abused and overused by teachers but also should not be ignored. When used appropriately and correctly assessments are one of the best and most effective ways to monitor students' progress and modify a course accordingly. Assessments are a tool teachers should learn how to use correctly as they can greatly elevate the value and integrity of a course.
