2  Definitions of assessment and test.  The relationship between assessment and teaching.  You have learned the differences between formal and informal tests, formative summative tests, norm and criterion – referenced tests.  We also traced some historical trends in language assessment especially the communicative performance based assessment.

3  In order to design a test for your students, you need to determine first your purpose from that test.  Defining the purpose will help you define the kind or the type of test you will be using.  “why am I creating this test? for evaluation, diagnostic, or for placement purposes?  Is to measure achievement within a course”  Defining the type of test will help define the objective and the outcomes of the test.

4 There are five types of English language tests:  Achievement,  Diagnose,  Language Aptitude,  Placement,  and Proficiency Tests  As English classroom teacher, you will probably need to create three of these types of tests: Achievement, diagnostic, and placement tests.  Language aptitude and proficiency tests are the two types of test that you might not need to create or design for your students during a course of a semester.

5  In group of four, you will be assigned to one type of a test. In your group, brainstorm and discuss the purpose of test and write your answers in the provided card.
