This is how our TEFL graduates feel they have gained from their course, and how they plan to put into action what they learned:
There has always been a misconception regarding reasons for teachers to give assessments.Many students have exam anxiety and really hate tests and treat them as a burden, so did I when I was a student. Exams, if looked from a different perspective, are used to monitor the students' learning progress and to identify the students' strengths and weaknesses, both of which are valuable information for teachers to adjust their lesson plans to better suit the students. There is no way that a teacher would want to punish students using frequent tests. From my own working experience, I normally give unit tests and term tests for students of beginner and intermediate levels to ensure that they build a solid foundation in knowledge, whereas, for advanced level learners, I usually give monthly comprehensive tests to reinforce their knowledge level. I haven't done diagnostic tests yet, which is something I am considering doing in the future. Concerning external exams, I must say a teacher's own experience in preparation and taking that test is very critical in the success of preparing students well.
