Investigating Effective Strategies for Teaching Assessment Literacy to Instructors of Less Commonly Taught Languages

2:15 - 3:30pm
Presented at: Language Testing Research Colloquium (LTRC) 2012

This work in progress will present preliminary findings from a study of assessment literacy of instructors of less commonly taught languages. The study described in this WIP provides insight into how to cultivate assessment literacy by tracking the progress and depth of understanding of course participants over time. Presenters will discuss effective strategies for fostering assessment literacy in LCTL instructors and elicit feedback from attendees. Finally, implications for additional assessment and training resources that may be needed will be discussed.
