Assessment is an ongoing natural process here. We don't use tests in any formal sense.
When a student arrives, we ask a few questions to gain an idea of his or her background in Thai language. Then we make a fairly educated guess as to what the appropriate level might be and the prospective student attends a class at that level. Upon receiving the feedback from the student we are able to gain a much better idea as to what the appropriate level group is appropriate.
Once a student begins attending classes, teachers begin to observe the student's repsonses, attention to the subject, and gains an idea of how much they're understanding, and whether or not their gaining that understanding through tranlsation or through what's happening in each hour. These assessments are made every 2 to 3 weeks and are compiled to form the basis for our ALGie Chart.
The ALGie chart shows where a student is along their path of language acquisition. And are available upon request, once a student has completed about 100 hours. For more information on this see http://algworld.com/progress_assessment.php
