Scenario B – Sample Response
Imagine you were in Ming’s position. What would you do? How would you address the problem described in this situation?
- In this situation, I would first think about how I could help students understand the purposes of assessment so that they can see the benefits to assessment and ways in which it can help them build proficiency in the language. I would also ask students what types of assessments they would like to see in the course, such as self- or peer-assessment activities, and then pilot these activities with students and ask for their feedback on what went well and what they would like to do differently in the future. Finally, I would use students’ feedback when creating the syllabus for the next course level so that it aligns with their goals for language learning and motivates them to enroll in the course.
