⚫ 16.05 - 16.35 Measure Me: New Tricks in the Art and Science of Assessment
Other than in pedagogical settings, how often are you asked multiple-choice questions? How often are you confronted with statements followed by the tag, “True or false?” Despite the infrequency of these and other question types in the real world, language classrooms, textbooks, and standardized tests revel in them, primarily because they are easy to mark, particularly for a computer. But such tests seldom give learners the formative feedback that would help them improve their language acquisition.
The purpose of assessment is to let each learner understand the arc of personal progress and to let teachers understand the effectiveness and efficiency of their classroom teaching as well as to make summative decisions on promotion.
In this workshop, we look at scientific measures of the assessments we currently give, as well as ways to step away from the bell curve and explore alternative assessment tasks that provide a richer washback effect. Examples will be drawn from English for Academic Purposes, but the principles and tricks (or tips) are applicable across learner ages and language learning levels.
⚫ 16.35 - 16.40 Приветственное слово Екатерины Окуневой (методист Language 360, Санкт-Петербург)
⚫ 16.40 - 17.20 Tackling Testing and Tracking Progress
Although we are all aware that modern language testing is tied in to what a student can do in the target language and that just by improving their performance is preparation enough, both pupils and teachers like to have a firm grasp of what is expected. Also in this age of personal learning platforms and smart portfolios, there are ways that we can use technology to help track their students’ progress and show any areas that need improvement. This session will highlight some tools and strategies we can use to help students feel properly prepared, some techniques to help with areas they feel less confident about and some activities that will improve any weaknesses.
⚫ 17.20 - 17.25 Приветственное слово Маргариты Федотовой (Pearson Test of English, "Книжный дом")
⚫ 17.25 – 18.00 The Unexpected Next: Emerging Technologies and Their Application in Language Teaching and Learning
New technologies in the second-language classroom often result in unexpected applications and outcomes. For example, the image category in Google's search engine is used by some learners as a quick and easy alternative to defining or translating a word, essentially using the search engine as a picture dictionary.
In contrast to earlier technologies, a range of computing devices and the Internet have updated Industrial Age roles of the inventor, the engineer and the factory. Now, even the youngest of learners is suddenly able to use digital and online tools to create teaching and learning materials and cultivate new ways of learning. These innovations thus challenge many of the assumptions of the traditional classroom and the roles of the teacher, the learner and the wider teaching and learning community. (Philip Watson)
