A group of English Department faculty members has enrolled in the Art of Everyday Classroom Assessment of English Language Learners course online. This course is provided as part of the American English (AE) E-Teacher Program. This program is sponsored by the U.S. Department of State. The 5-week long course commenced from 25th September.
Every week what we learn, the reading materials we are given has to be shared with others outside the course. Therefore, I am taking this platform as a means to cascade the knowledge I am receiving there. I would be grateful if teachers who are NOT enrolled in the online course, can read/respond to the ideas here.
Today I am sharing a few articles.
1. The first article tells you why it is important to have the assessment matched with the learning goals and how you can do it.
2. The second article shows some ways to have summative assessments.
3. The last two articles show ways to have formative assessments.
