This diary entry was completed after Chantelle finished unit 15. Unit 15 looks at different ways of evaluating and testing your students and the importance of doing so. Types of test covered include placement tests, progress tests, diagnostic tests, and practice tests. The unit also looks at the different external examinations students are likely to take such as TOEFL and IELTS.


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.

I found the explanation of different techniques are very useful. Especially the ESA method, all the examples are given for Engage, Study and Activate phrases are interesting. Also how to correct and give feedback is great, that's not something I would have thought about in the past. This section is informative and really look forward to put it into practice.This has been a very difficult unit as I am new to the concept of different types of phrasal verbs. I feel that it would have been easier if the examples highlighted the object pronouns and the particles. It was easy at first but it gradually got more challenging as the test progressed. I am to do more revision on this particular subject near in the future.
