One of the challenges facing teachers who have had to move their teaching online is how to ensure that learning is still taking place. Traditional ways of assessing students’ progress are no longer applicable – so how do we move assessment online too? This presentation looks at two new online tests that can be used to place students at the correct level, monitor their progress across all four skills and be administered remotely.
