Intermediate Test Bank MultiROM

Introduction

Introduction

Welcome to the Solutions Intermediate Test Bank MultiROM – the complete teacher resource for continuous assessment, with materials that you can customize for your students and your teaching situation.

This MultiROM works in two ways:
In your computer it has tests as PDFs and Word documents, and answer keys.
In your CD player you can play the audio tracks for the listening exercises.

The tests on this CD-ROM

All the tests are provided as PDFs PDF and as Word documents Word doc – the content is the same. You can print out the PDFs and use them as they are. (If you don't have Adobe Reader, get it from the Adobe website.) If you want to adapt the tests, you can edit the Word documents and save them on your computer. If you have any problems opening the documents, go to the documents folder on the MultiROM.

There are two versions (A and B) of the Progress tests and Cumulative tests. If your students don't copy each other then you can just use the A tests. If your students do copy each other then put them in pairs, one with an A test and one with a B test – it's almost impossible for them to copy each other's answers. (The A and B tests cover exactly the same material, but the questions have been reorganized.)

All the tests can be photocopied freely for classroom use. They may not be sold without the permission of Oxford University Press.

Guidelines for adapting the tests

You might want to add something extra you taught in class, remove something you decided to omit or didn't have time to teach, or even personalize the exercises. You can easily do this by:
