The purpose of taking the quiz below is to measure your familiarity with concepts relating to assessment and testing.[/cs_text][x_custom_headline level=”h2″ looks_like=”h3″ accent=”false”]What do you have to do on the test?[/x_custom_headline][cs_text]The test is not timed.

At the beginning, you agree to a Statement of Integrity that you are not using any memory aids (whether digital or paper) to answer the questions, and that you will not discuss the contents of the questions with any other Level 1 candidates.

The quiz below covers topics about assessment and testing in general. There are some multiple choice questions and others where you will type your answer.

The questions do not relate to to any one test (for example, it does not ask anything specifically about the organization, structure or scoring criteria of IELTS or TOEFL iBT), so if you lack experience with a specific exam, it will not be counted against you.[/cs_text][x_custom_headline level=”h2″ looks_like=”h3″ accent=”false”]Where did this test come from?[/x_custom_headline][cs_text]The concepts in this test are tested on Cambridge’s Delta, Module 1. This test was written by Jaime Miller with the help of Luis Silva, who writes for Cambridge University Press.
[/cs_text][x_custom_headline level=”h2″ looks_like=”h3″ accent=”false”]What should you study?[/x_custom_headline][cs_text]These concepts were originally mentioned in General Approach, “Behind the Scenes” Exam Stuff (where there was a webinar and accompanying slides). You may also find it useful to brush up on the relevant terminology with Scott Thornbury’s resource, An A-Z of ELT: A Dictionary of Terms and Concepts.

Additionally, it is recommended that you practice using those concepts and terminology to describe tests or assessments that you are familiar with.

The passing score for this quiz is 80%. You can take it up to 3 times, but your results are seen more favorably if you pass on the first or second attempt.[/cs_text][/cs_column][/cs_row][/cs_section][/cs_content]
