What did you do yesterday at this time? What will you do tomorrow at this time? Student A: She was again very descriptive and answered them in full sentences with correct tenses.

This passage was a lot longer than the first one. Both of them spent a quite time reading it over again. Student B told me that he didn’t understand the word “confused,” “participle,”, and “thrilled.” He also told me it is difficult and too long to read. Writing Student A -The happiest moment in my life is my birthday when I was seven. My mom and dad and I went to Disney land in Japan. It was amazing. My dad baught me Mickey mouse hair bad and big doll. The doll was bigger then me. It was brown and have cute nose. I think it was the best doll in the store. I love my parents. Writing Student B Happiest moment in mylife is now. I am health, my dad is health, my brothers health, my mom is health. I go to school in America. I am happy everyday because my class is very interesting. I like American food. I like pizza. I eat pizza lunch time. I am happy. Overall evaluation I think my original assessment was a bit easier than my students’ English proficiency. They found the test pretty simple and not that difficult to do. Student A finished her test in less than twenty minutes. I think with this assessment, she is definitely in advanced level 4 or 5. Student B took almost 20 minutes to finish the test, and he is also in upper intermediate or advanced level. The problem with him was that he could do a lot better than this, but he was too shy to talk to me. Also, he was less motivated to do this assessment test than student A.
