Participant Resources Page – Assessment and Reporting for EAL students in primary and secondary schools

Thursday November 18, 4-5pm

Online Panel Discussion

What does effective assessment look like? How do we give feedback that shows students their strengths and assists them to improve? How is assessment practice changing to meet current research?

In this session, we looked at the big and small questions about assessment and reporting as it applies to EAL teaching and learning in primary and secondary schools. VicTESOL assembled a panel of primary, secondary and new arrivals teachers, as well as department and university representation to take part in a broad discussion.

The panel includes:

Anna-Lise Wallis, EAL Unit, Department of Education

Prachi Patkar, Noble Park English Language School

Sarah Martin, Blackburn English Language School

Tahnee Dwyer, Dandenong High School

Ute Knoch, Language Testing Research Centre at the University of Melbourne

The panel was hosted by Michelle Andrews, Preston North East Primary School.
