The material can be tested in classroom context. Students are asked to do the tests as placement tests. Based on the results, they can be recommended what level of Slovakian course they should enroll. Then they can be navigated to e.g. e-slovak.sk website to choose an appropriate self-study course for themselves. After completing a course, they can be tested on their knowledge about Slovakian again. Their development can be detected by the results of the two tests. Moreover, the efficiency of the online resources recommended to them can also be evaluated based on the test results.
The tests can used outside of classroom context, also. Anytime a student wants to get some feedback on their level in Slovakian, the tests can be used; as they come with keys, they are suitable for self-check.
