Section 1: Tuesday and Thursday 5:00-6:15 PM
Professor: Mary Lou Vercellotti
This blended course (with required online and face-to-face components) will explore different methods of assessing language performance in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL). Assessment of different language skills (i.e., listening, speaking, writing, reading, grammar) will be considered. Both quantitative and qualitative, formal and informal, measures will be covered. We will evaluate our assessments with the assessment principles of validity, reliability, and practicality so to create a strong, balanced assessment portfolio.
