Exams and tests can give us, teachers, feedback – interesting one. The teachers on post # 879 carried on talking about this, and I could hear them.
When reading and grading our students’ exam papers we can see many possible things: this point over here that I supposed it was clear it isn’t at all, and needs extra work; as well we can gain a vision of how well our students lately are, for example concerning writing stories - I used to include one question in written tests that was to write a short story: I enjoyed some of the stories: very imaginative.
Summing up: by reading and grading our students’ tests we teachers can improve our way of teaching, or telling stories, or presenting a grammar pattern, or implementing listening activities, or keeping doing that thing that way, which lately is turning out ok.
