Evaluation and Testing of Students - Types of Tests


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.

A very challenging unit. I have learned the different types of methodologies that TEFL teachers use. I now have basic information of what would be required of me once I become a teacher. Further studying and reading more material will definitely help me understand more. Furthermore, engaging teachers who are already plying their trade will serve as a bonus for me.This unit was about the types of reading materials used in a lesson. The teacher will need to choose a course book that is appropriate for the class based on language ability and interests. The teacher should not follow he coursebook rigidly though. Some lessons should be adapted and supplemented with authentic reading materials or materials created for the class.
