Whether or not we believe in tests, we are frequently faced with the need to use them. Do you have to design your own tests or give feedback on tests designed by others? How confident do you feel about it? What are the characteristics of an effective achievement test? This webinar will review some common terminology related to testing and then focus on how to design effective achievement tests for your groups or critically analyze the tests you use. Practical examples will be shared and controversial topics will also be addressed. The tips are based on the presenter’s vast experience writing and revising tests in her language institute.
