Evaluation and feedback are important to booth students and teachers during the progress of language learning. As lessons and knowledge are being taught to students continuously, it is important for teacher to understand how the students are able to obtain information that have gone through in class. Therefore, tests and assessments should be given to students periodically for identify their language level and to see which part of the course should be reintroduced. Tests and assessments can be classified in two different types which are the internal tests and the external tests. The internal tests are usually taken with a language school while the external tests are mainly conducted by other organisations which provide English proficiency tests. The internal exams are divided as follow, the placement tests which students are being tested on the language level before they are being sorted into a class, progress tests which is used to monitor students? understanding of the knowledge through out the course, diagnostic test that are given to students at the beginning of the course to justify their levels and the practice test that helps students to get prepared for the external exams and get used to the test format. External exams such as TOEFL, IELTS and TOEIC include the testing on the four basic English skills which are reading, writing, listening and speaking. The purpose of the above external examinations is generally used to provide a proof of English proficiency for non native speakers when they are trying to apply universities, colleges or a job. The Cambridge assessments such as KET, PET, FCE, CAE and CPE are used to testify the English level of a student during different stages of their studies. Nevertheless, there are also external exams and assessments that helps individuals to prove that they are able to apply English in their daily basis. For example, when non native speakers are moving to Britain, they would require a certificate in ESOL skills in life while others will take the BEC and BULATS in order to prove their abilities are qualified for their career in business.
