Host Institution: Università per Stranieri di Siena
Coordinating Institution: European Association for Language Testing and Assessment
Website: http://www.ealta.eu.org/events.htm

Dates: 28-Jul-2014 - 01-Aug-2014
Location: Siena, Italy

Focus: The aim is to address theoretical and practical underpinnings of classroom-based language assessment, an area of obvious importance, however often not given enough attention in teacher education. The course will address the following topic areas: - Introduction to educational assessment and language testing and assessment - Developing and using different forms of language assessment in classrooms - Assessment of language competences (skills) - Assessment of language elements (grammar & vocabulary) - Large scale assessment for learning - The function of feedback - Self- and peer-assessment
Minimum Education Level: Undergraduate

The course aims to address graduate students, language teachers and teacher educators, researchers, test writers, exam designers and policy makers, administrators and school program planners who are responsible for language assessment.

There will be a mixture of lectures, seminars and practical work, and participants will therefore be asked to bring their own laptops. The course does not require much experience or specialized knowledge in language testing and assessment. A short questionnaire will be included in the application form to make it possible to adapt the detailed planning of the course to the needs of the participants.

We are very pleased that Professors Ildiko Csepes, Gudrun Erickson, James Purpura and Dina Tsagari have generously accepted to be tutors in the 2014 Summer School.

The programme and the application form are available at the EALTA (European Association for Language Testing and Assessment) website: http://www.ealta.eu.org/events.htm.
