  • Key Issues related to assessment

    I know that valiable and reliable assessments are extremely important to the success of the language learners. These assessments can encourage confidence and increase second language acquisition opportunities. As I am learning more about assessments, do you feel that a domain is more important than the other? Should there be a specific focus on listening, speaking, reading, or writing? 

    Looking forward to hearing a response!

    With regards to assessments for the 4 skills (speaking, listening, reading, writing), it would come down to the course you teach.  What is the focus of the course?  If you are mostly conversation with some reading comprehension, your test should reflect that.   Another factor would be preference of the school.  Many schools love speaking tests to assess ability.  That being said, speaking tests are time consuming and very subjective.  Best to use an accepted model/rubic for speaking.
