“Online environments totally transform our approaches to classroom-based assessment.  Teachers can therefore find it challenging to track progress, assess language development and help learners with an action plan for improvement. The role of alternative assessment in this new context becomes more central, albeit harder to implement. In this webinar we will explore practical tips and tools that can be used in principled ways to help teachers to both track progress and motivate learners but also, to help learners become more autonomous and independent in their own assessment process. We will look at specific web-tools through a formative assessment standpoint and a critical pedagogy framework.
