Progress Tests
In Lesson 5, teachers give progress tests to students to assess how well the students have learned the language so far and to identify the areas that require more instruction. The test questions are in the Teaching Guide, and students record their responses in a Student Workbook. 

End-of-Unit Assessment
The final lesson is the end-of-unit assessment. It includes a range of question types (such as circle the correct word, sketch an image of something) to evaluate how well students have mastered the unit's material. The Teaching Guide contains the unit assessment.
