Evaluation and Testing of Students - Practice & External Proficiency Tests


This video is part of our video series on "Evaluation and Testing of Students". In this video, we look at practice and external proficiency tests. Practice tests are usually used for revision purpose before internal and external exams to prepare the students. There are three types of external proficiency tests that English learners can take. Find out which ones in this video.

Below you can read feedback from an ITTT graduate regarding one section of their online TEFL certification course. Each of our online courses is broken down into concise units that focus on specific areas of English language teaching. This convenient, highly structured design means that you can quickly get to grips with each section before moving onto the next.

I really like this unit. I can really connect with the topic. As I associated it with my learning French. Students will need a great deal of motivation and positive feedback to keep them excited to learn a new language. I accept the challenge to reach my students English. I am looking forward to the many challenges and wonderful moments I am going to have teaching English.In this unit I learned about the four different types of past tenses and all of their different uses. I am now able to identify the correct tenses when they are being used in sentences, whereas before I was simply able to use these tenses without being able to explain the rule for using them. This will be especially helpful for teaching the past tense in a classroom setting.
