A new outlook on assessment
Since the lockdown many teachers have been wondering about the best ways to assess their students through the four language skills. Teachers have tried many tools and got lost in the maze. Some teachers reverted back to the usual paper-based assessment tools, while others did them online, not sure of their success while others made a hybrid type of assessment but not yet totally satisfied. As has already been mentioned in The JALT CALL Journal, teachers need to focus “on how [to] achieve specific goals by applying unique pedagogical innovations around [their] classroom’s technology usage,” thus through the experience gained during lockdown, I would like to help teachers with technological tools that would help them assess their students’ work more effectively, achieve the curriculum objectives and thus give them a push with learning the language. In this presentation, I will use the new CEFR Companion Volume to show teachers/attendees how to use it for student assessment. I will also show the five online tools like Vooks, Wordwall, Beta, .... etc. that can help them do assessments for the four language skills as successfully as possible.
