Assessing Students at Tertiary Level: How Can We Improve?
Lewkowicz, Jo A.
Hongkong Papers in Linguistics and Language Teaching, v15 p39-46 1992
A number of issues related to assessment of students undergoing English enhancement courses were raised at a workshop on assessment held at The University of Hong Kong Language Centre. The primary focus of the workshop was to update staff about current assessment practices in the various programs run by the Language Centre and to discuss issues of professional interest. The workshop threw light on some of the persistent problems in assessment that are experienced by a rapidly expanding tertiary teaching program and should be helpful to others facing a similar situation. Questions covered relate to types of tests used, who assessment is for, authenticity, assessment criteria, and alternative assessment. Although many problems remain unresolved, the exchange of ideas reported has suggested lines for future investigation and development. Contains 7 references (LB)
