A Training Project to Develop Teachers' Assessment Literacy
Jiyoon Lee (University of Maryland – Baltimore County, USA)
DOI: 10.4018/978-1-5225-6986-2.ch004
While every stakeholder in education is concerned with assessment in one way or another, it is undeniable that the teachers play pivotal roles in assessment. Teachers are involved in developing and administering the classroom-based or high-stakes assessment, analyzing and using the assessment results for their instruction, and communicating the results with other stakeholders including students and parents. However, research studies documented that pre-service teachers do not receive enough education to develop their assessment literacy.

Based on the definitions of LAL discussed in the chapter and test-usefulness framework, the author developed a pedagogical project where pre-service ESOL teachers developed and critique their assessment practices.
