Assessment strategies for EAL students



The webinar will cover formative and summative assessment, including how supporting EAL pupil language development and tracking their progress can be done utilising a variety of online tools while purely face-to-face teaching models are disrupted.   It will also consider how schools can incorporate generic EAL teaching skills into lessons which would allow for a wider range of exams to be taken for university entrance in addition to IELTS.

Speaker: Dr Helen Wood
