Online Workshop - Assessment for Language Instructors: The Basics

This free online course provides world language instructors with an understanding of the fundamentals of assessment. The course lasts five weeks and is made up of five units that require 2 hours of work each week. Unit 1 focuses on an introduction to assessment, including an explanation of different types of assessments and the specific uses for each. Units 2 through 5 discuss in detail the four principles of effective assessment--validity, reliability, practicality, and impact--and provide specific examples of how each applies to real classroom assessment situations.
