Sammanfattning (abstract):
The aim of my lecture is to focus on the value of collaboration in language testing and assessment, particularly emphasizing learners’ perspectives and contributions. Special emphasis is placed on assessment as a reciprocal phenomenon with an obvious pedagogical potential to promote learning – for students as well as for teachers. Throughout the presentation, the value of transparency is emphasized, not least in relation to the learners. Five basic questions are briefly addressed, namely Why?, What?, How?, Who? & And…?, thereby linking pedagogical assessment to the fundamental concept of validity. Some experiences and examples are presented from the development of national formative and summative language assessment and testing materials in Sweden, a process in which learners have a significant role. In addition, some results from a European study of students’ and teachers’ perceptions of language testing and assessment are presented. Finally, the concept of collaboration and learners’ perspectives are discussed in relation to EALTA’s Guidelines for Good Practice in Language Testing and Assessment, a document currently available in 35 different languages.
