Evaluation and Testing of Students - Diagnostic & Progress Test


This video is part of our video series on "Evaluation and Testing of Students". In this video, we look at the diagnostic and progress test. A diagnostic test gives the teacher information about the students' current strengths and weaknesses, while a progress test is usually held multiple times during a course covering all the material taught up until that point to check understanding.

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.

In my opinion, this unit is one of the most important units in the course as it deals with practical issues. The suggestions given here on teaching individual students, young learners and business English students are very useful and practically-oriented. And I will definitely use the sample needs analysis with my potential business students.The different types of the Past Tense and the usages of them. We go into a detail explanation of Simple Past, Past Continuous (progressive), Past Perfect and Past Perfect Continuous tenses. With these notes, it has made it a bit easier to understand the tenses myself and also has managed to help me find easier ways to teach it to my students.
