Session Title: 

CEFR Vs. Assessment: How can new revisions help?


Logo: If you already have a logo for your session, upload the image file to the wiki. If you don‘t have a logo yet, you can add one later, during the moderator training session. (We will help you find/create an appropriate logo if you don't already have one.)


Abstract:  

CEFR has settled rules for determining students' language levels. Yet what is the relation between it and assessment? What are the newclarifications/descriptors added through the recently published CEFR revisions? Can these really promote teachers' assessment of their students' classwork and their lesson plans as well? Is there a place for technology also? Let's look it up!!


Target audience: 

Supervisors, Head of Departments, Experienced and Novice Teachers 


Session objectives: 

By the end of this session, the audience would be able to:

  a.  Understand the different scales and descriptors of the CEFR

  b.  Assessment their students and work according to the new CEFR revisions 

  c.  Develop teaching Speaking and Writing skills and assessing them
