Module overview

A range of key constructs in assessment theory and currently popular techniques in assessing language proficiency are reviewed and critically discussed. The overall processes involved in designing and implementing assessment procedures which are valid, reliable and fit for purpose are explored. An important component of the unit is the design, trialling and/or review of particular assessment instruments relevant to participants' professional activities, and you will be expected to contribute actively to this dimension of the module in the workshop sessions.
