 This event will be held online.

Assessment in the classroom is a core driving force behind what and how students learn, however, it is no longer perceived as just a tool to measure progress. With student motivation in the forefront of language acquisition, learning frameworks, course design and lesson delivery are transformed to use a variety of assessment strategies to help students reach their outcomes and be more involved in the learning process. 

In this session, we will discuss examples of self-reflective and self-evaluative exercises, visual thinking as well as various practical assessment approaches used during an action research project in face to face and online teaching of students ranging from preschool to adults. 

We will summarise the methodology behind the approach and focus on the design, implementation and the discovery, and include feedback from both teachers and students involved in the research. To close, we will consider if the strategies were easily transferable between the face to face and online environments and share best practices based on our discovery.
