PRACTICE TOEFL TEST THURSDAY, FEB 18, 3:15-5:30

LAGOMARCINO E-164

Students must register beforehand through the IEOP e-Learning site, which is located at http://elearning.ieop.iastate.edu/index.php.

After logging in, they should click on the link on the left that says “Practice Test Registration” and follow the instructions. 

Students need to bring their ISU card, one or two pencils, and a good eraser.  I will supply all other testing materials, including the answer key and guidance on how to calculate the converted score.

Please encourage all students to take the test, especially in light of the University’s decision not to accept ACT scores for any tests taken after Feb 12.

Thank you for your cooperation!

20 January 10 (more)

I missed seeing all of you at the party at the union today.  I hope you all consider the chance to join the conversation club to improve your spoken English.

Meanwhile, I want to make sure that my Writing students (Writing 2C) get the message that we will be meeting in McKay 213 tomorrow.  If you know someone in my Writing class, please tell that person about the room change.  IEOP does not have email addresses or phone numbers for those students to tell them about changes.

Reading students (Reading 4D) will meet in LeBaron 67.  Please note this new room.

I hope to see all of you tomorrow.  If class is cancelled again, I will post that cancelation on this page.

 

20 January 10

IEOP has cancelled classes today due to weather conditions.

IEOP has asked me to announce the following:

Please tell your students that the IEOP Conversation Club will meet for the first time for the spring semester Wednesday, January 20. The students should meet the leaders at the "Underground" recreation center in the Memorial Union at 3:10 pm. Students can enjoy free bowling and pool. This is a student mixer that allows the leaders to introduce themselves to the students. The "Underground" is located on the lower level of the Memorial Union.

We are still having the mixer at the union, even though classes are cancelled.  I look forward to seeing you all there.
