Online testing

July 27, 2009

Hello again,

Placement testing, level testing, exam practice: in the past these areas all had to be devised or organised by schools on behalf of their students. As in so many other areas, the Internet offers a quick and easy solution...

...to all testing needs. Quite apart from the convenience of online facilities of this type, I think they have value in that they relate to how students work and study in their own environment.

My first suggestion is Oxford English Testing online . Here you can have new students take an online placement test and find their Common European Framework level. The same site offers practice test for KET, PET, FCE, CAE and IELTS.

If you have students who wish to study for one of the Cambridge exams but are not sure which one is right for their level, Cambridge University’s Test Your English site has an online test that can help the student decide which exam is appropriate.

Cambridge University is also responsible for BULATS, a language test for business English learners. This is done by computer but a demonstration test is available online .

All major English language tests can be practised online: TOEFLE, IELTS and TOEIC. All these online resources make testing easily available to students worldwide.

    I will be finishing a TESL certificate course at the end of February. I've noticed that most of the job listings require a college degree. Is it realistic to think I can get a job with just a certificate and with out a degree? I'm forty four and have been in the event business for the past twenty years. Any in put would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you
    Bryan
