    The course intends to introduce the student to evaluation understood in its broadest meaning, that is, not only as a language test, but declined according to its function and its modalities. At the end of the course the student will have acquired both the theoretical / notional knowledge related and the practical skills to carry out evaluation tests.
    Specifically, the student will be able to:
    -describe the different language skills assessment tasks
    - identify advantages and disadvantages in the different evaluation methods (e.g. computerized and non-computerized tests)
    - apply the principles of assessment for learning to diatica
    -deconstruct evaluation tests relating to assessment objectives and methods
    -design evaluation tasks for different levels / skills
    -design evaluation scales for production tasks for different levels / skills
    - build computerized tests on the Moodle platform

    EXAMS

    EXAM DESCRIPTION

    The exam is written and will be held on Aulaweb.
    The test is divided into:

    -12 multiple choice questions (4 answers, one correct)
    -5 open questions

    NB. Exam methods may vary according to the University regulations.
    The details of the different tests (as well as sample questions) will be published on the Aulaweb page of the course

    ASSESSMENT METHODS

    Multiple choice questions test knowledge of the concepts

    Open questions require the candidate to argue, evaluate or design evaluation tests (see training objectives)

    For example, the candidate may be asked to design a test for a specific language skill held for a given level of the CEFR (see learning objectives "design assessment tasks for different levels / skills"), or the candidate may be asked to illustrate the advantages and disadvantages of an assessment method (see training objectives "deconstruct evaluation tests relating to assessment objectives and methods")

    Open questions are rated on a holistic scale from 0 to 4 which takes into account the following criteria:

    execution of the requested task (eg. if the question asks to "illustrate and exemplify" a concept, it is necessary to explain it and provide examples to support it)
    completeness and correctness of the information
    quality of the language and organization of the text
    terminology

    FURTHER INFORMATION

    More details about the program and exam methods will be made available on the Aulaweb page of the course
