Equally researchers are interested in evaluating teachers' awareness and improved performance in relation to the learners' performance. The current study was designed to investigate the teachers' awareness level and way of practicing the assessment tools for the better learning of the students in the English Language Institute (ELI), King Abdulaziz University. The research was based on the perceptions and feedback of 30 female language instructors from 5 different nationalities with varying qualifications and ELT experience working at ELI.
