Please, imagine that the word FRUIT in the task 6 is in the right (not left) column. and that these really are columns Very Happy

I also have a question regarding my task 10. You may have noticed that I haven't put the number of points for it. My intention was: not to give away the number of misspelled words. I also considered removing the points from task 7. How to deal with these situations?

Hi, Marta!

Just to briefly answer your questions (I will dedicate more time to the rest of your items later):
- in 7, you could assign 0.5 points for each so the total will be 1
- in 10, you could give points for both the correctly and incorrectly spelled words, i.e. if the Ss recognize that the word is correct, you can also give a point; and if they try to rewrite correct words, you can deduct points - so the total in the task could be 8 points

Does this help? Smile

Hi, Marta!

I think you've done a really good job here Smile
I especially like items 2, 5, 6 and 8.

At this point, I will not comment more specifically, because I would like your colleagues to give some feedback first.
(I have noted down my observations, though, so you will definitely receive my feedback soon)

Hi, Marta!

Here are just a few comments about your test that I otherwise find to be interesting and well done. Smile

In the first task, I would put possible answers for each line separately because that way Ss have less chance to guess the correct answer (the way it is done now, if the S knows that "ate" should go on the first line, he has only two options to choose from for the second line).

Also, I'm not really sure that Task IV is an open-ended task as it should be. However, I might be wrong. Smile

You are right, thanks for that!

True. It is not really an open-ended task. (lack of creativity scratch ). I didn't know how to give context for the task without using the conditional forms (in which case the students could simply figure out the forms from the context/instructions and use them in their own sentences).

p.s. sorry, I don't know how to quote, so I put my text in bold No

Dear Marta,

I am so sorry to be so terribly late with this feedback. No

Here are my comments:

- item 1: since you have a combination in each of the options, I don't think using unacceptable forms such as “eated“ or “goted” is necessary. You might as well use “eaten” and “gotten” instead, since these are actual forms, but don’t fit into the given sentence.

- item 4: as Davor said, this item is not open-ended. Take a look at some other examples your colleagues posted and you might find something inspiring.

- item 5: I really like this item, but a way to make it even better would be to provide some context, either in the actual task, or in the instructions

- item 6: this is a great way to test compound nouns!

Generally, this is quite a good test, the only aspect that could perhaps be improved is its authenticity.
