A vital part of teaching ESL/EFL is developing and implementing valid tools to assess the levels, needs, goals and progress of one’s students. In this course participants examine traditional forms of testing and learn to design alternative forms of assessment. Activities include exploring, designing and implementing a variety of assessment tools and tasks. Finally, participants look at the relationships between assessment, testing, teaching and learning. Prerequisite: Methods and Techniques for Teaching ELLs, NELT 0411 or some classroom experience.
