24 September 2019, 5 pm
TEASIG’s first autumn webinar offers insights into how to familiarize teacher-participants with the idea of creating and using bilingual rubrics for assessment of speaking and writing skills in the classroom. In the first part of the webinar, the focus will be on steps involved in developing context-specific and need-based bilingual rubrics. The second part will be devoted towards discussing how to use these rubrics for assessing speaking and writing skills in the classroom. In addition, a brief discussion on evaluating the effectiveness of rubrics will be undertaken. Considering that bilingual rubrics are an exciting new prospect in the area of classroom assessment and can be effectively integrated into ESL and EFL classrooms, the webinar can be expected to benefit ESL and EFL teachers.
