Easy online assessments?

My father (65yo) has a small business teaching English as a foreign language to adults. He doesn't teach from scratch, but rather teaches those who already have a basic understanding of English. To do this, he asks all who apply to first complete a 2-page basic language assessment. He has recently created a website, and would like to be able to include the assessment online, preferably embedded on the website, or as a link to an assessment site. What software or site would easily help him do this? [more inside]

Interest assessment test?

When I used to do testing for the State Employment service we had what we called a general "interests inventory" test ("Would you rather collect butterflies or draw a picture of a building?") We would give it to young people to help determine what areas of work they might like to pursue. Is there a current, free online test like that? My nephew wants to try to begin to set his son on a career path (freshman in high school) but the young man doesn't seem interested in anything special. Thanks.
