Communicative Language Assessment: Promoting Best Practice for English
Language Classrooms

An Interactive Workshop for lower secondary school teachers

Date: November 17, 2017
LCC International University

The European Association for Language Testing and Assessment (EALTA) and the educational institutions Vilnius University, Panevėžio 5-oji gimnazija, Kauno Jono Jablonskio gimnazija, and LCC International University invite you to participate in an all-day interactive workshop on classroom-based language assessment for secondary schools. The workshop aims to bring secondary school English language teachers together to create language assessments for their classrooms that are relevant to instruction and help teachers guide students’ language learning. The days’ sessions will provide an overview of classroom-based language assessments relevant to secondary school contexts, discuss what we as teachers should consider when creating classroom-based assessments, and when adapting textbook and class materials to fit classroom assessment needs specific to teachers’ classroom contexts. Lower secondary school language teachers are especially encouraged to attend. Certificates of attendance are awarded to participants at the end of the day.

Participation is limited to 30 teachers per workshop session.
