ELL-U: Formative Assessment to Inform Quality Adult ESL Instruction

Upon completing this 2-hour online course from LINCS, participants will be able to: 1) define formative assessment and explain its integral role in systematically planning and delivering adult ESL instruction, 2) select and design a variety of formative assessment activities that engage learners in setting their own goals and monitoring their own progress in English language development, and 3) use appropriate oral and written feedback techniques that inform learners of their progress toward meeting their goals in meaningful and comprehensible ways. A free LINCS account is necessary to enroll in the course.
