"OVERVIEW:

This webinar is the second part of a two-part series that considers how to design assessment tasks in writing and how to evaluate those tasks.

Young learners can lack confidence in their writing skills in English partly because they find tasks cognitively challenging but also because they may still be learning literacy in their first language(s). In this session we look at how to develop and standardize assessment criteria for writing tasks so that we can understand young learners progress and help them improve. These criteria are generally more successful if the learners are included in their development and we look at how we can achieve this as well as ways of using the criteria with self, paired peers, peer groups and teacher judgements.
