‘End of course exam’ is a phrase that can strike fear into the hearts of many people and this can often translate into results that fail to live up to our true potential. At ITTT we try to remove any exam anxiety from our online TESOL courses by using a system of ongoing assessments as you work through the course materials, rather than a final exam. Our courses are divided into individual units and each unit concludes with a multiple choice assessment that you need to complete before you move onto the following unit. Also, you do not need to hit a specific score for each individual unit assessment. In order to pass the course you need to reach an overall score of 75% across all of the assessments in your chosen course. As long as you achieve an average of 75% across all the units, you will graduate from the course and receive your TESOL certificate.
The main thinking behind this approach to assessment is to make our courses as user-friendly as possible and to remove much of the stress that is often associated with taking a training course. Thanks to this style of assessment, most of our trainees are able to work comfortably through their course and achieve the successful conclusion they deserve. We believe that our trainees shouldn’t have to waste precious time worrying about exams, instead they should enjoy a smooth, stress-free training process that allows them the time to make plans for an exciting post-course adventure.

Can I Fail an online TESOL Course?
Despite the flexible and user-friendly design of our online TESOL courses, you will still need to put in a good amount of effort in order to pass the course. Those that fail to complete their course rarely do so due to a lack of academic ability, it is almost always because they weren’t able to put in the necessary amount of work.
