Thematic area: Evaluation

Evaluation and assessment have an important formative as well as summative function. However, they sometimes consume disproportionate amounts of learning and teaching time. It is therefore of critical importance to ensure that the approaches used are based on recognised quality principles.
The projects in this area set out to answer questions such as:
How can learners and teachers (and other stakeholders) know that learning has been successful?
What evaluation strategies can they adopt?
How can evaluation and assessment facilitate the planning of future learning?
How can school examinations be linked to European standards?
How should teachers react to the shift towards more centralised evaluation?
A number of the projects in this section deal with practical application of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR).
