My Project Paper Report: Perceptions of TESL Learners on Their Readiness to Administer English Language Tests in Schools.


The purpose of this study is to find out the perceptions of future English teachers who would become teachers and English language testers on their readiness to administer language tests at schools. To realize this study, 31 student teachers at Sultan Idris University of Education (UPSI) were selected to participate in this study. The methods of questionnaire and interviews were used to carry out this study. Findings and results revealed that positive and negative perceptions were drawn from their responses with regard to this study. This study is important as the researcher believes that future teachers’ viewpoints can also contribute towards the change of status quo in the education system of this country particularly in the field of English Language testing as they are going to become the agents to implement any educational policy set by the government of the day. Besides, the report of this study also provides some suggested solutions to problems which are happening in the present language testing scenario in Malaysia. It is hoped that this study will become a reference for student teachers, teachers, language testing instructors, university administrators and personnel in the Ministry of Education to consider for very much needed amendment to take place in the field of language testing.
