The ELT Society is pleased to announce the start of monthly Assessment Literacy Development Webinars for members. These professional development webinars offer a unique opportunity for members to develop their assessment competence. Increased assessment literacy, and knowledge about best testing practices and principles, is a worthy professional goal for individuals, teachers, testers, administrators, and all other interested stakeholders. It leads to stronger and better programs, departments, institutions, and companies.
What is assessment literacy?
Assessment literacy is the possession of knowledge about the basic principles of sound assessment practice, including its terminology, the development and use of assessment methodologies and techniques, and familiarity with standards of quality in assessment.
