Hi again, ESL teachers.
Here’s the second of the two-part series on the 47th IATEFL Conference, which ended April 12th and took place in Liverpool.
This one’s about Deniz Atesok’s, a teacher from Turkey, favorite tools for the assessment of ESL students and teachers. If your experience as a teacher has been anything like mine, the assessments of students you’ve performed consisted of written tests plus some listening exercises and some conversation questions, all applied individually. Deniz has some original ideas about how to assess students – her ideas could actually be used as in-class activities and maybe allow you to assess students throughout the course rather than just on the final day of class.
Here are some highlights:
- Traditionally, skills are tested separately
- Although students are traditionally tested individually, it may be a good idea to test them in a collaborative setting since this is a better representation of an actual work environment
- Several interactive, collaborative tools are presented with ideas on how they can be used for assessment purposes
- Deniz offers students alternative ways to be evaluated so that they can choose their level of interaction and whether they want to step out of their comfort zones or not
