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.
Unit 15 covers many types of tests, both those useful for a teacher and those that students are likely to be preparing to take for school or business. This unit goes over why to use placement tests and diagnostic tests at the beginning of a course as well as the benefits of regular progress testing. The use of practice tests that simulate external exams from any number of testing facilities is also mentioned as a good way to help students prepare and also help to identify weak spots in students English ability in order to better direct what needs taught.
