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.

This unit has a lot of great information about intonation stress and pronunciation that native English speakers may have a tough time teaching to students. The International Phonetic Alphabet will be greatly helpful with difficult pronunciations. In addition the fact that there are general intonation patterns will be greatly helpful when teaching Chinese students.This section is very different than the last one. I feel like the importance of all four areas are equally important to each other. It's funny, I had thoughts before reaching this section that writing may be hard to integrate into a class, but I also understand the importance of it if members of the class need to learn English in order to maintain or obtain a job.
