Best Classroom Practices on Assessment2425January, 2020AX Seashells Resorts, Suncrest, Malta


Closing date for proposals: 16 December 2019

Conference Theme: Reinforcing language learning with effective assessment is as vital as applying effective teaching methods. While catering teaching methods forl earners to achieve the most desirable outcomes, it would be unwise to impair their learning process with poor assessment practices. Increased awareness of the considerable impact of assessment on learning has aroused a great curiosity among teachers about how to develop assessment tasks for the enhancement of learning. Surveys have repeatedly shown that teachers’ knowledge and skills in this critical area fall well short of what is needed. This is hardly surprising because assessment is often treated as an afterthought: the final chapter in the book and the last module of the course.To this end,teachers need a supportive platform to develop their assessment literacy skills and to consider practical ideas that can be applied in their classrooms. This one and a half day conference aims to support teachers in their efforts to apply best classroom practices on assessment,with plenaries from the leading voices in this field as well as talks and workshops from speakers coming from a range of educational settings. This conference will be a platform where practitioners and researchers come together to discuss theoretical insights and methods of implementation.We welcome proposals from language teachers and researchers working in assessment to contribute to this supportive environment where we can all exchange ideas to improve our assessment practices.Workshop and talk proposals may cover one or a few of the suggested themes as follows: assessment for learning, assessment of learning, technology and assessment, authentic formative assessment, washback of assessment, the role of teachers’ assessment literacy, teachers and learners as assessors, self-and peer assessment, and the role of placement testing and diagnostic assessment. Proposals must be received by midnight (UK local time) on 16December2019.The Speaker Proposal form can be found from We will be delighted to see as many of you as possible either as presenters or as delegates.
