Yasar added this comment about assessment to the previous article:
The sample tests that we gave to our students after fifty hours of instruction are comprehension based. Little output is required. The achievement level after the test is 100%. That is, 100% of the students taking this test received a grade of 45 (the minimum passing grade for a course) or more out of 100. Their average mean score is around 70. The average score of the students is around 70/100. This is good because it shows that we are on the right track to achieve our objective of making at least 80% of our students reach A2 level in the standardized Oxford Placement Test by June 2015. Compared to traditional communicative methods, this is twice the achievement in less instruction hours. Thus it will be much easier to convince the decision makers to make some meaningful changes in language programmes throughout the country.
