TAG-Confucius Institute Holds the Last Chinese Proficiency Test of 2020

On December 12, TAG-Confucius Institute (TAG-CI) held online the third Chinese Proficiency Test (HSK/HSKK test, home edition), which was also the last test of 2020, covering HSK level 1, 3, 4, 5, 6 and HSKK basic level and intermediate level. A total of 84 students took part in the test, which was conducted in a standardized and orderly manner.

Despite the experience of two home-based online HSK/HSKK tests before, TAG-CI still took the test seriously with every detail considered to test the quality of Chinese teaching.

Before the test, the teachers carefully studied the relevant documents of the test, including the management manual of home-based online test, the user manual of the network system, the instructions for examinees, and the instructions for the examiners, etc. Each teacher established a WhatsApp group with the students he/she was responsible for, conducted test training, guided the students to download and install the APP, practiced the operations of the test system, did mock test, distributed the admission tickets and passwords and the others.

On the day of the test, the teachers and students joined the pre-scheduled Zoom meeting room of each level one hour in advance, logged in to the test system, performed face recognition, downloaded test paper and answered the questions. The teachers monitored the test through the test system and Zoom, and solved various problems encountered by the students in a timely manner. 

Some other problems were solved with the help and guidance of the technical teachers from Chinese Testing International (CTI). 

After the test, the teachers gave supplementary time to individual students to re-do the specific questions that were missed because of some problems the students encountered. The chief examiner filled in the required information in the system and sent the test room record forms to CTI. After the whole-day test was successfully completed, the teachers felt relaxed finally who had been concerned about the smoothness of the test. The gratitude from the students and parents was the greatest consolation to the teachers. At the same time, we would like to express our thanks to

The students and parents for their cooperation, and our special thanks also go to the technical teachers of CTI for their patience in answering the questions in the group before the test and 24-hour online company and technical guidance and support on the test day, all of which ensured the smooth progress and success of the test. 
During the COVID-19 pandemic, the home-based online test, on the one hand, ensured the safety and health of the teachers and students, and on the other hand, it also facilitated students’ needs for scholarships, graduation and job hunting, etc.
