I write this post as some of my grade eleven students write the pre-test of the Theolingua B2 level English language exam.  As I have previousy written I volunteered to do the pre-testing of all levels of the English exam.  Well this has turned out to more work than I thought.  It has though given the opportunity to reflect on various different test types - multiple choice, fill in the blank, full sentence answer etc.  Also to think about various text types, styles and lengths.  Have I come to any great conclusions, as I pour over lots of filled out tests and weigh the 'fairness' of the various tasks?  Far from it, I have more questions now than ever about testing and exams and the 'fairness' of different task types.
