Assessing Speaking and Assessing Writing
Assessment literacy is increasingly recognised as a key skill for teachers and others in education throughout the world. These two workshops take an interactive approach to exploring practical issues in assessment, using video, discussion and worked examples to explore the assessment of speaking and writing, including:
- What is involved in the skills of speaking and writing.
- Tasks appropriate for speaking and writing assessment.
- Examples of criteria and rating scales used in tests.
- Approaches to applying what you learn in your own context.
By the end of these workshops, participants will be equipped to make more informed decisions about how to assess their students’ productive skills, better understand the speaking and writing tests that their students are preparing for, and create more communicative-focused classroom assessments based on real-world language use.
