Posted November 03, 2018 08:50:30The Department of Education’s Essential Education Skills Australia website has recently launched its new English language testing service.
The website features a wide range of test preparation tools and quizzes that can help students to prepare for exams and other assessments, such as English language arts, reading, writing and maths.
While the website is not available to all students in Australia, students can find the tools on the Education Skills website.
The new service comes at a time when the Government is considering requiring schools to provide students with English language training.
This will require teachers to take a mandatory English language test to gain access to the Department of English and Cultural Studies (DESC) English Language Teaching Service.
Under the plan, teachers will have to take an English language assessment at least once in the year and must provide a copy of their assessment to the DEA.
The DEA said in a statement that it was reviewing the DEAs proposed testing regime.
“The Department is working to develop a comprehensive approach to ensure that teachers can focus on teaching students and teaching the subject at all levels, so that they have the flexibility to provide English language teaching for all students,” it said.
“The Education Department will provide more information to help teachers plan for the implementation of this new policy in the months ahead.”
The new language assessment service has been developed by the Department for Education’s Education Department, Education Training Service and the Department’s Office of English Language and Multilingualism.
It comes as a result of a pilot program to assess whether the Essential Education Skill Assessment System (EEASAS) could be extended to include more languages.
In a statement, Education Minister Simon Birmingham said the Government was “looking at all options to extend the assessment”.
“We are working with the department to ensure the existing test and the new service are aligned with the Government’s English language standards,” he said.
Mr Birmingham said it would be important for teachers to work together with their principals to ensure there was “quality and consistency across all aspects of the assessment.”
“The aim is to make sure all children, and particularly children with special needs, can access the best English language and language learning resources possible,” he added.
A Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade spokesperson said the department did not support or support the proposal.
