Evaluation & Testing in FSL
"This course focuses on the theories and research underlying testing and evaluation in second language courses. Some of the topics that we will examine are the history of evaluation in the L2, the process of evaluation in the classroom, formative and summative assessment,
authentic assessment, the constructivist approach, skills assessment, criterion-referenced and standards-based assessment, assessment scales, self-assessment, concepts of validity and reliability, and computer-assisted assessment. The goals of the course are both theoretical and practical.
