Plenary with Anthony Green: Putting assessment for learning to work in the language classroom
Assessment for learning (AfL) promises to improve teaching and learning using evidence gathered from everyday classroom practices such as group work, discussion, and observation.
AfL does not seek to make additional administrative or bureaucratic demands on teachers. Instead, it is a mindset focused on giving students the motivation and ability to become more effective, independent, life-long learners.
The presentation will include suggestions for classroom activities that support the three key practices identified by research as underpinning successful assessment for learning:
- diagnostics: finding out where learners are
- learning intentions: making clear what is being learned
- success criteria: ensuring that students understand what success involves.
