Assessment and Motivation in English Language Programmes
Date: Monday 10 April
In this webinar, Craig Thaine investigates how formal assessment and classroom-based assessment can motivate learners and enhance learning. Drawing on meta-analyses from general education and using a Learning Oriented Assessment (LOA) framework, we explore practical ways of motivating learners via constructive feedback and appropriate follow-up tasks. We look at how teachers can use assessment to respond directly to learner needs.
