This is how our TEFL graduates feel they have gained from their course, and how they plan to put into action what they learned:
Evaluation and Testing is talked about in this unit - Evaluation and testing of students/learners of English.
The different methods of evaluating English learners are outlined which include; usage of tutorials, Evaluation by students and tests.
There are different types of tests with different purposes which include; placement tests, progress tests, diagnostic tests, practice tests, progress tests, formal tests, achievement tests and proficiency test. Depending on what is being sought to be acquired, any one of these tests could be used for assessment.
I think testing and evaluation is definitely a vital part of teaching because students would always want to know how well they are doing and any progress they are making. However, I think teachers should know their students well enough, and be able to choose the testing style wisely in order not to create an environment where students' sole aim will be to pass a test and acquire high scores rather than actually retaining the language and putting it into effective use.
