TEASIG & TESOL Bangladesh Testing and Assessment SIG: Use of alternative assessments in everyday classroom practices
Join the IATEFL Testing, Evaluation & Assessment SIG and the TESOL Bangladesh Testing and Assessment SIG, together with Afroza Akhter Tina for this joint webinar.
This demonstration focuses on assessing everyday classroom lessons to informally measure learners’ understanding of the course contents. Four activities intended for alternative assessment will be demonstrated here through ‘Individual Assessment Cards’, ‘progressive I-Can Statements, ‘portfolio assessment’ and ‘reflective diaries’ not only reflect their gradual development/understanding of the lessons but also provide feedback to the teacher throughout the course work.
