The materials in this toolkit were developed as part of a British Council funded research project which explored teacher attitudes to assessment and their training needs.
In this module we will explore why assessing young learners might be challenging and offer some practical suggestions. Download the 'Assessing young learners toolkit' below to find out more.
The emphasis in the materials is on practical approaches, but in line with our participants’ stated needs it includes a basic introduction to theoretical perspectives. Each of the five topics can be read as a stand-alone unit. We would, however, encourage readers to read all five units. The training materials cover:
- CEFR and assessing level
- assessing young learners (this module)
- assessment for learning
- language assessment for teachers
- assessment resources.
