Flexible You can print the tests out and use them as they are or you can adapt them. You can use Microsoft Word to edit them as you wish to suit your teaching situation, your students or your syllabus. Here are some of the things you may wish to do.
Delete or add exercises to make the test shorter or longer. Delete exercises or items which relate to points which you decided to skip. Add in exercises to cover extra content you introduced into the course. Edit exercises to make them harder or easier, or to introduce key vocabulary. Edit the format of exercises so that they are consistent with other exams that you use. Personalise the content of exercises to bring them to life. For example, incorporate the names of students in the class, other teachers in the school, famous people and places from your country. Use the audio scripts to create extra listening exercises for example by removing words to create gap fills, adding options to create multiple choice exercises or introducing deliberate mistakes for the students to correct. Add in the name and/or logo of your school at the head of the test.
Finally, save your new version on your hard drive.
