Linguistic Field(s): Applied Linguistics

Meeting Description:

In language learning and teaching programs, assessment typically receives the
least attention. Many language teachers view assessment solely as a measure of
student learning, while in fact assessment can be used for various purposes,
ranging from administrative to instructional purposes.

Through well-designed assessments, promotions, certifications, and exemptions
can be properly planned. Assessments may also be used as a means of measuring
program performance as well as evaluating curriculum implementation or teaching

The Faculty of Language & Literature in cooperation with the Language Training
Center, Satya Wacana Christian University, invite language teachers and
researchers in this field to explore some of the challenges that are faced by
teachers and students. Even if teachers unconsciously depend on a particular
assessment tool as a measurement of successful learning, there are other
effective tools that can bemaximized for different purposes. This seminar is
intended to mirror the role and development of program assessment, in addition
to giving further inspirations to teachers in choosing appropriate assessment

To observe the faculty role and their development in program assessment
To examine student roles, expectations, and learning strategies
To look at the advantages of proficiency tests, non-testing assessments, and
other alternative measurements and supporting tools

Invited Speakers:
Prof. Lyle Bachman, UCLA, California, USA
Prof. Hiromi Otaka, Kwansei Gakuin University, Japan
RELO Jakarta, Indonesia
