12 Characteristics of a Good Test

English Language Teaching & Testing Guide

A good test should be:

1- Valid:

It means that it measures what it is supposed to measure. It tests what it ought to test. A good test which measures control of grammar should have no difficult lexical items.

2- Reliable:

If it is taken again by ( same students, same conditions ), the score will be almost the same regarding that the time between the test and the retest is of reasonable length. If it is given twice to same students under the same circumstances, it will produce almost the same results. In this case it is said that the test provides consistency in measuring the items being evaluated.

3- Practical:

It is easy to be conducted, easy to score without wasting too much time or effort.

4- Comprehensive:

It covers all the items that have been taught or studied. It includes items from different areas of the material…

Room of joy

Mariam BenHassona

We all have something this something that brings joy to us. and where this thing belongs is our room  of joy . if you’re a kid your room of joy could be a candy shop or toy store, for teenage girls it’s probably shoe store. for men it could be a car display , I bet its a museum for my history teacher .could be anything anywhere a follower shop ,kitchen ,a mountain  top , tent by the beach ,art gallery ,gaming center  ,or even a zoo , it’s not really what  it is, its more of what it means for us and how it leave us feeling

I was just eyeing my room looking at all the books that I have, thinking to myself I could never own enough ,which bring us to my room of joy, it’s my grandfather office it has more books than I could count, I’ve always loved it…

how to get the apology

 

Today when i got to class my student were being really noisy and I couldn’t nor I had the energy to clam them down. So I went to the noisiest one of all and sat in her place handed her my markers and said:
-We’re going to switch roles you’ll be our teacher today and and ill be a student like any-other in class.
ofc she was happy. Took it as a game and every one was exited.
the girls in the back started talking others weren’t paying attention to her they. kept asking for water and bathroom they drove her crazy all she did was yelling trying to get them under control, she even times out almost every one.”ironic since she is my most timed_out student”
after the class ended she came to me and said that she had no idea how disturbing it is , and she is very sorry for the way she had been

First day as a teacher

I been wanting to teach for a while I thought it’s somthing I would like to do 

So here I am walking in school full of expactions I had just learnd that I’ll be teaching 3rd and 4th grade I was all prepared for an awsome first day I bought candy and I wrote  welcome back to school cards with a smily face I thought it would be enought to buy there love  “I thought wrong ” when the students came in all noisy they walked in as if I wasn’t even there one of them asked 

Are you the English Teacher ??”

“Yes ! , yes I am “

“Ok”

Okey ? Is that all am getting , anyways after stuggle I got them all to sit down and talked them into butting the candy in there bags so they can eat it later . It was time to show them that I am a cool teacher , so I asked them if they want to play a game it’s the only way I could’ve thought of then the only way I got there attention after I tried to explain the game all I got was ” awwwwoo it’s a lame game ” 

alright then what about I learn your names ? I asked so I pointed at the first one told him to stand up and tell me his name the first thing he opened his mouth to say his name the whole class started loughing , I felt bad for the kid to start with I thought they were loughing  about him but the same exact thing Happned with the sacond and the third student when I realized they been giving me fake  names 

And so this was my wonderful experience as a teacher  

Wish me better days a head with little mor controle 

Get dressed to clean the bathroom

As a women we all know that we have chores that we have to complete at the end of the day. and there not encouraging enough for you to be eager to get it done, so before I get to the point let me ask you one question,  when do you feel better about yourself or feel more confident so let me make some guess

  • At special occasions
  • when you know you look good at a day
  • When your all dressed up fancy
  • when you proved someone wrong
  • When someone flirt with you
  • When you get your hair done
  • When someone compliment you
  • When you’re wearing heals
  • When life smiles at you
  • When it just goes right

Does any of this sound familiar to you do you remember how you felt in such situations, they may not be all true for you but some of them must be .in most of them you looked good , this answer something most men do not understand about women why do we like cloth , makeup and shoes so much. it’s easy really because it makes us look good and when we look good we feel good and when we feel good we become more confident of ourselves. and all that leads to what’s important which is how to get our insipid boring daily life duties done.

No one needed to tell you that when look good you feel good, you already know that but why don’t we use this as a power point. we all have things that we don’t really like to do but we still have to do them. so why don’t you fix yourself up before doing them, even if it’s just cleaning the bathroom, sounds crazy? Just try it.

When I don’t feel like doing anything but the facts apply that I have to I fix myself up, let’s say I have an exam tomorrow and I have to study but I don’t feel like it what I do is get myself in the mood , wear something nice (not fancy but nice enough) brush my hair and maybe little lipstick and perfume ( you’re not doing any of this to go out or show of )it’s for you no one else. try it and then look in the mirror for few minutes and  appreciate yourself and love it. Believe it or not you’ll feel  better , happier , in a good mood and we all know when we are in good mood nothing could stop us.

In brief *the better you look, the better you feel, the better you get it done *

“When you look good, you feel good. Confidence with what you’re wearing is very important. If you feel good, you will always perform your best without worrying about anything”.

_ Maria Sharapova

Room of joy

We all have something this something that brings joy to us. and where this thing belongs is our room  of joy . if you’re a kid your room of joy could be a candy shop or toy store, for teenage girls it’s probably shoe store. for men it could be a car display , I bet its a museum for my history teacher .could be anything anywhere a follower shop ,kitchen ,a mountain  top , tent by the beach ,art gallery ,gaming center  ,or even a zoo , it’s not really what  it is, its more of what it means for us and how it leave us feeling

I was just eyeing my room looking at all the books that I have, thinking to myself I could never own enough ,which bring us to my room of joy, it’s my grandfather office it has more books than I could count, I’ve always loved it ever since I was a child .butting me in that room is like butting a child in a candy store I get this burning desire of wanting to take it all home

Books make me really happy even thought what gives a book it value is its words , but I what makes me happy is the texture of the paper on my hand,and how it smells . a lot of people moved to reading PDF now , but it’s never as appealing for me

I always liked going to my grandparents house .the whole house is like a  library you could find all sort of books with all different  languages you can find them everywhere  in the bathroom ,around the living room more under the bed and in my grandfathers night stand I won’t be surprised if I went to the roof and found more books there . and it always just make me so happy sometimes I just walk in his office and I would stay there for hours without feeling the time pass by. I usually dont even read one book  during this time but I be just there  looking at all the books all the titles and I just sort of get lost .

So yes my grandfather office is my room of joy and I hope that I can fill in my room with this much books one day. sometimes you just have to ask yourself what makes you happy where do you go to feel better ,figure out your room of joy and make sure you spend enough time there

Ps your room of joy could be in your head, it could be a level of understanding you just need to reach
