This is what one of our TEFL graduates feels he has gained from the course, or a part of it, and how he plans to put into action what he has learned.
I have learnt from this unit that a student must be evaluated before beginning a course if he/she and the instructor, expect to gain the utmost performance in said student, and the successful undertaking by the teacher of accurately and appropriately presenting the course. Knowing where an individual is and the extent of his/her capabilities will help the teacher to know how to prepare and ease the student into a new venue or spectrum of life they may never have experienced before. Knowing what they know to begin with can set the stage for what they may acquire and the degree of acceleration in which they may acquire and advance it. Appropriate, evaluations, observations, and testing may enhance a student's learning experience in a way that is custom built for them, for their individuality and ability to grasp, absorb and retain what is presented to them. Student evaluation, observation and testing also shows the teacher what materials to present, how to present them, how to reinforce, draw back from or discontinue them by how effective, receptive and beneficial they are to his/her students. Evaluating, observing, and testing supports the compilation of results that give definitive information about students and how to proceed with students, so that they achieve success. The different varieties of tests, evaluation methods and access to them help to place and develop students' skill levels, students' skill advancement, and student interests in real world, hands on and even global use and interaction. In essence placement testing and evaluating is the key to and core of successful learning.
