20211023T1355 20211023T1425 Asia/Ho_Chi_Minh Summative assessment in online English classrooms: Preliminary study on an adapted strategy in Covid-19 situation

The covid-19 pandemic has a dramatic impact on education including English language teaching and learning worldwide. The current fourth coronavirus wave in Vietnam has caused traditional physical classrooms to shift into e-learning settings again while most language courses are coming to an end. This urges the institutions to apply online testing for the summative assessment. This paper briefly reports the premilitary results of the adaptation strategy of English language testing at a vocational college in Vietnam. The research employed both quantitative and qualitative methods involving the main use of document study, questionnaire survey and semi-structure interviews with English teachers and students at Hue Industrial College where online education has been undertaken on digital platforms due to the fourth waves of Covid-19. The triangulation of data collection instruments and sources of information helped to sort out important considerations taken into learning behaviors, teaching practices and curriculum design at vocational institutions. The outcome of this study enables the learners and teachers' readiness to test changes and classroom assessment as a response to the urgent demand originated from the current situation or possible coronavirus wave in Vietnam.
