20201016T0925 20201016T1025 Asia/Ho_Chi_Minh Creating Innovative and Authentic Assessments for the Oral English Classroom

The present workshop seeks to provide participants with ideas on how they can utilize formative assessment in their oral English classroom to increase both teacher and student awareness on classroom performance. A significant challenge in the oral English classroom is that students do not have enough time to demonstrate what they are learning. A student-centered classroom should provide consistent opportunities for students to practice the language skills they are learning. These same opportunities for students to practice are vital moments for the teacher to dissect and understand how and what the students have learned and thus adjust their lesson and semester plans accordingly. The workshop will begin by presenting teachers with a short overview of the impact washback can have both on teachers and students. Immediately following the introduction, the facilitator will highlight three examples of formative (informal) assessments that are easy to implement for multiple styles of classrooms. Teachers will then get into small groups based on the classes they teach (example: Post-secondary, K-12, English Language Centers, etc.). During this time, teachers can discuss ideas on how the assessments can be adjusted to fit within their own classroom needs. The workshop will conclude with a short discussion on how participants can engage in positive washback to increase the communication between teacher and learner before a final exam to improve student performance and engagement.
