Hi  Vanessa, something I used to do at the beginning of a course is to gather the students in groups, and tell them to write as many questions as they can ask in English using as many different tenses as they know. it is not very exhaustive but it helps to get a quick idea. For adquired knowlege I use self-assessment questionnaires  but it is for them to assess their own learning. I don �t know if it is of any use what I do. Best wishes.
