Natalie Said:

Types of tests?

We Answered:

Ok, first, when a new student arrives at a language school they are given a placement test to check their level. Then, while their studying, there are diagnostic tests, to see which specific areas they need further work on. There will also be progress tests, to check that they are learning and progressing, possibly leading to a final achievement test, which can be internal (administered by the college) or external (e.g. Cambridge FCE, IELTS, TOEFL etc).
Prgress tests can also be called formative assessment and achievement test - summative assessment.

In terms of worksheets, they will either focus on one of the four skills (reading, writing, speaking and listening) or systems (grammar, vocab, phonetics and discourse). I believe, the reading, writing, grammar and lexis ones are the most common.

Hope it helps!

Alternatives to testing?

We Answered:

proficiency in a language is how you would gauge or test a person. as well is this for both written and spoken, there are a lot of variables, and perhaps numbering them might help.

Alternatives to testing?

We Answered:

In my opinion, these would fall under the heading of "general work assignments" so I think it would be best to use the specific terms: Grammar test, Vocabulary test etc. Using a broad range term such as Progress test makes it sound so much more difficult and would probably put undue stress on the students. A basic "quiz" or "unit test" isn't half as stressful on most students as an overall "progress test" even if it is the exact same test with different titles.
