Review Materials

Welcome to the “Language assessment” Section of the ENRICH CPD Course. This Section focuses on language assessment and on the ways in which issues related to English as a Lingua Franca may be integrated in it. To this end, different types of assessment are described, including summative, formative and alternative assessment. Emphasis is placed on how language assessment in the classroom can be culturally and linguistically sensitive and flexible by adopting an ELF-aware perspective. This Section includes four Activities in total.
