Reinforcing language learning with effective assessment is as vital as applying effective teaching methods. Increased awareness of the considerable impact of assessment on learning has aroused a great curiosity among teachers about how to develop assessment tasks for the enhancement of learning. Surveys have also repeatedly shown that teachers’ knowledge and skills in this critical area fall well short of what is needed. This is hardly surprising because assessment is often treated as an afterthought: the final chapter in the book and the last module of the course. To this end, teachers need a supportive platform to develop their assessment literacy skills and to consider practical ideas that can be applied in their classrooms.

This one and a half day conference aims to support teachers in their efforts to apply best classroom practices on assessment, with plenaries from the leading voices in this field as well as talks and workshops from speakers coming from a range of educational settings. This conference will be a platform where practitioners and researchers come together to discuss theoretical insights and methods of implementation.
