MINI TESTS dictated

The teacher dictates 3 or 4 exercises on BASICS, that is, vocabulary essentials, numbers, telling the time, formulaic language, verbs, idioms, conjugations, transformation of short sentences, et cetera) to be done immediately in the classroom by the students.

All the students are to stay sitting separately as if taking an examination, although the activity equals a simple test.

AIMS:

a/ check that your own teacher´s talk (pronunciation, intonation, English language) is clear.

b/ check the students´ s understanding as well as their knowledge of spelling, vocabulary and grammar

c/ check the students´s progress on elementary points, that is, see if they still have problems with any aspects of verbal tenses or vocabulary METHOD

**

SAMPLE

  1. Write all months of the year in order. Make 2 sentences of  a minimum of 6 words using “June”, “her” in the present continuous tense negative
  2. Put these numbers in letters: 2nd / 12th / 15th / 20th / 23rd
  3. Conjugate the past simple tense of the verb TO SPELL in the interrogative form. Translate one form into Spanish
  4. Name 4 idioms from the wordlist from lesson 4 (cf. Aula Virtual / @moodle; PPA. Second term. Business English 2)

Do not feed cheaters!

Tom Berenger as Jonathan Shale in “The Substitute“.

Dir. Robert Mandel. 1996]

In tests, controls and examinations teachers must avoid questions on BASICS which could be easily copied on a slip of paper. Do not feed cheaters!

In case a teacher would like to check the student´s learning of the days of the week, ordinal numbers from 1st to 12th, for example, he shouldn’t directly ask like this “write all days of the week in order” or “complete the numbers missing on the following list first, se……., th….., fourth ………..ninth …

Another way might be as follows:

a/Pass these messages into Spanish

She will meet her friend Joan next Thursday at 5.44

__

*Are you coming with us to the zoo tomorrow?

**You mean, tomorrow Tuesday?
