Sammanfattning (abstract):
The aim of this presentation is to address – from conceptual as well as from practical and empirical points of view – assessment as an integrated and essential aspect of language learning and teaching. After a short introduction on the role of assessment in education, five fundamental questions are focused upon, namely Why?, What?, How?, Who? and And…?. Consequently, different purposes and functions of assessment are considered, as are possible definitions and interpretations of the construct(s). The wide phenomenon of rubric is discussed, ranging from aspects of design and procedure to rating, standards and feedback. Furthermore, the question of agents in assessment is focused upon. Finally, and related to the concepts of validity and reliability, the use and impact of testing and assessment are highlighted, from individual as well as pedagogical and societal points of view. Throughout the presentation, the value of collaboration at different levels is emphasized. In the second part of the presentation empirical examples, from the national Swedish as well as from the European context, are given. Finally, the concept of Good Practice in Language Testing and Assessment is discussed, and examples are given from the EALTA Guidelines, currently available in 35 languages.
