Stakeholder Feedback in the Design of an Online Student Assessment Resource

Presented at: East Coast Organization of Language Testers (ECOLT) 2012 Annual Conference

This poster describes the collaborative development of an online tutorial designed to introduce Arabic students to the principles of oral proficiency assessment. Feedback on the tutorial was elicited at multiple stages from stakeholder groups of learners and instructors to ensure efficacy for users and meet project objective of increasing student understanding of standards-based assessment. By illustrating the development process and the final content of this tutorial, the poster examines how assessment knowledge considered foundational by language testers can be presented in a platform that is informative and appealing to learners at the high school and university levels.
