Universidad del Valle de Mexico Coordinators' Page Teachers' TOEFL Results of Teachers’ TOEFL Exam To all coordinators: I. Our teachers should be among the best in Mexico. For this reason, the Coordinación General de Inglés will do everything possible to help teachers improve both their teaching techniques and their level of English. II. It would be expected that our teachers should get approximately 600 on the TOEFL exam (87-percentile rank for all people taking TOEFL exam 1997). III. In order to help teachers reach this level, the following plan will be followed based on teachers’ TOEFL scores from January to March, 1998. Teachers will be divided into three groups (A, B, C) depending on their scores. Group A: (540 +--69% rank): Congratulations. No additional work is needed. Group B: (490-539—33 to 58% rank): These teachers probably need practice with taking the TOEFL test itself, not specific work to improve their English. It will be recommended to these teachers to either take a TOEFL preparation course or complete the exercises in any of the TOEFL preparation textbooks. They will take the exam again in one year’s time. I will happily help these teachers in any way I can—consulting, text suggestion, correction of exercises, etc. Group C: (below 490—below 33 % rank): These teachers need to raise their English level. Their results are similar to many teachers at our Course 5 level. They need to devote time to improving their level of English. They will be given one more opportunity to take the exam and raise their score before these low scores influence their job positions here at the Universidad del Valle de Mexico. I suggest you communicate with Elisa Martinez in Lomas Verdes for information on how they organized a course to help teachers improve their grammar. The teacher they hired, Barbara Taylor, would be willing to give courses on other campuses. The courses could be on grammar, listening and/or reading. Teachers in this group will take the exam again in one year’s time. It will be hoped that their scores will have improved by this date. Be sure your teachers read the letter directed at them which explains what the TOEFL exam is (and what it isn’t).
