There are many types of assessment.  At our October 30th gathering, we’ll focus mainly on the assessment measures we can implement — during a course, and during a class — to help us measure students’ learning and realign the focus of our teaching, and to help students become aware of their progress, strengths, and areas that need more attention.

Bring your questions and also examples of what works or doesn’t work well for you.  Together, we’ll explore what kinds of assessment work in our own teaching contexts.

Please join our Reflective Practice Group for ESL practitioners.  All are welcome: teachers, aides, pre-service teachers…
