Assessment is an important part of learning. It helps learners identify their weaknesses and strengths, and it gives them a goal to strive for. Young learners’ language skills are frequently assessed both when students are in class with ‘unofficial’ tests and when they sit exams run by institutions. Preparation can often be a stressful process for both students and teachers.
This webinar hopes to offer practical ideas to use in class while at the same time answer the following questions:
- How can we make assessment friendly and enjoyable for our students?
- How can we prepare our students effectively for the big day of the exam?
During the webinar, material will be used from the new YLE Skills course.
