Multiple-choice test + Written and Verbal Communication exercises


Kind of assessment: An in-depth yet simple and standardized assessment of fundamental skills involving a 2-hour test comprising of 50 multiple-choice questions, one essay (testing written communication) + two self-videos (testing verbal communication).

Competencies covered: Subject Understanding, Teaching Practices, Professional Competencies, Written and Verbal Communication; based on the CENTA Standards, a globally-benchmarked and nationally-recognized competency framework for teachers.

Syllabus: TQ tests a subset of competencies from the CENTA Standards. For Subject Understanding, common topics from the NCERT syllabus are used, though the testing itself is applicable for all boards (CBSE, ICSE, State Boards, IB, IGCSE, etc.) and focuses mainly on conceptual understanding and application of the topics. For questions related to Teaching Practices, the focus is on understanding and application of common techniques, and several situation-based questions are used to make the test practice-oriented. The questions on Professional Competencies will cover classroom communication and management, teamwork and understanding of education policies.
