Testing is probably one of the activities that most expose the professional attitude and suitability for the job of any foreign language teacher. Not only is the teacher obliged to show his own foreign language proficiency – teachers also have to show their ability - and willingness - to present pupils with fair and valid tests on the contents taught beforehand.
In this seminar we will explore how parameters such as validity, objectivity, reliability, transparency or just a neat external form determine a decent and acceptable test for foreign language learners at all levels.
Moreover, different test formats and exercises will be examined for their practical value and for the application of the above parameters.
Lastly, students will be given the opportunity to develop small tests, test exercises or lessons of their own - just as they will be shown examples taken from the lecturer’s daily school practice. The latter will also include some concrete practice in terms of marking a test.
