This video is part of our video series on "Evaluation and Testing of Students". In this video, we cover the different types of tests teachers will come across. These include placement tests, diagnostic tests, progress tests, practice tests and proficiency tests. In the next videos, we will take a look at each type of test in detail.

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.

It is true that writing skills are often neglected during lessons. We as teachers are more focused on speaking and receptive skills. This unit taught me about accuracy and fluency activities. Thus far I have learned that interaction activities like group and role-play, and that games are very good ways to make students more comfortable and to participate more during lessons.Unit 18 looked at modal auxiliary verbs, phrasal verbs, relative clauses and passive voice. It was difficult for me to get through, as some of the grammar lessons have been but was still very informative. Its very interesting and helpful to look at a breakdown of the english language in this way, particularly for a native speaker that speaks without really thinking about it.
