WorkLife English: LifeSkills Workbook 1, Instructor’s Annotated Edition, Intro + Chapters 1-10 Progress Tests + Test-Answers Key, pages 93-117
Who It’s For: (Teachers of) Novice (Language) Learners Wanting Quick Assessment of (Some) Basic Reading / Writing Abilities
Why You Need It: Even (or perhaps particularly) pre-/semi-literate learners of English / new readers benefit from simple, quick measures of how much targeted skills material they’re actually “acquiring.” Especially if “assessment instruments” like those in the F-01.10 Download are used for (upbeat) teaching / learning purposes (instead of serious grade-laden examination), test-takers are likely to enjoy filling in the illustrated exercise-like sections on these pages. Although items of the Progress Tests correspond to the Intro + Chapters 1-10 of WorkLife English: LifeSkills Workbook 1, they can be used singly, in or out-of-order, or together—at any time during Written-Language Skills Lessons or for homework. That’s because they’re not so much testing specifics of text material (vocabulary, grammar, spelling, etc.) but rather general abilities to read and understand printed numbers & letters, words, and sentences; to follow instructions; to connect sounds to letters; and to write at basic levels.
