TEASIG: Co-constructing a measure of engagement through negotiated self-assessment
Join IATEFL Testing, Evaluation & Assessment SIG and Nancy Mitchell for this webinar.
How does one measure engagement? The self-assessment is a valid and reliable tool for formative development and metacognition but has a limited role in summative measures. If our teaching approaches seek learner-centeredness, perhaps our evaluations should include learner input as well. In this webinar I will share a little context of my own attempts at negotiated self-assessment as a summative tool and invite participants to consider how self-assessment may be integrated into their own evaluation practices.
