  • 1. O n l i n e T e s t s
    • How to create them by exploiting free tools
    • Getting students ready to face them
    • Different possibilities
  • 2. Why would you use them?
    • They are practical to be administered and easy to store
    • Precision in marking is easily guaranteed
    • They will always be within easy access (as long as there is an internet connection)
  • 3. Why wouldn’t you use them?
    • Only higher level students may be able to sit for these exams
    • Students are not used to being tested like this
    • The applications to set them up are difficult to use (or require some payment)
  • 4. All students can work on them –even the young learners
    • They must be graded
    • Tests for lower levels should rely on visual stimuli
    • High creativity is demanded, especially when tool features are scarce within the application used to make the tests
  • 5. Student training on working with the type of exercises on the test is crucial
    • Similar tests should be systematically introduced to the students before the real exam.
    • Students need to feel safe: Apart form knowing syllabus content they should be experienced on the type of activities presented on the test so as not to get “stuck” and, therefore, fail.
  • 6. NO experts needed !
    • Web 2.0 stuff available to set up activities for the test
    • No need to use difficult programming language to create these exams
    • Lots of teachers will be able to tailor tests for their students and will not feel ashamed at lacking strong computer skills
  • 7. So what’s next ?
    • Start investigating and trying out different resources
    • Jump onto the wagon (doesn’t matter if it’s the last one) of this fast train.
