I'm glad to hear you are all back at school. I wanted to let you know that we have decided to postpone the diagnostic test for the special classes to September 2011. Why? Well, there are a number of reasons:
1. The date for the end of year exams has not been changed so time is very short.
2. We would like to give you some more training on administering and marking the exams.
3. It seems an impossible task to combine the mid year exam with the new exam.
I think it wold be useful to have a workshop/training session on the administering speaking tests and marking the speaking and writing tests. I also think it would be very useful to get your input on developing a system for reporting the marks to students, parents and headteachers. Would any of you be able to give Yvonne, Beth and myself a session on how the exam system at Al Azhar Institutes works?
I hope we can organise a couple of days together next month. Please let me know what you think.
All the best,
