Designing effective assessments is an important part of every language and literacy teachers' and assessors' toolkit. Understanding the constructs of how we think about language and reading, the processes of creating instruments that measure accurately and fairly, and embedding the principles of good assessment all contribute to good decision-making.

This minicourse illustrates how to construct an effective testing instrument for reading assessment. Students will evaluate existing theories and industry best practice, and develop their own assessment instrument. Students will then be asked to justify their design decisions.

Please be advised that this minicourse is made up of four parts please see LIN8007 for the full course specification.
