4. Post-Testing and Feedback

Why Post-Test?
The post-test reflects what has already been accomplished with the pre-test by continuing to measure the true impact of the Cambridge course. Students are given the opportunity to apply everything that they have learned up to this point. The post-test enables a pre- and post-test comparison that measures both student and teacher progress. Teachers and administrators use this valuable pre- and post-test comparison data to fine-tune existing instruction, help students formulate personal action plans, and plan changes to the program to allow for even greater growth.

How to Post-Test
Post-Testing should be completed in four steps:

  • Step 1: Prepare for Test Day
  • Step 2: Administer the Test
  • Step 3: Submit Your Answer Forms
  • Step 4: Review Your Reports

Cambridge offers several testing options for both in-person (paper and pencil) and virtual learning. These include:

  • Paper test booklets
  • Paper answer forms
  • Paper test booklets and online answer forms
  • Completely online testing

Cambridge also supports several proctoring situations to fit your needs. We can help you administer tests in:

  • A classroom
  • A group remotely
  • An independent remote situation
