Visit us, Cambridge English Exam Centre - Swiss Exams, at the IATEFL TEASIG Conference in Aigle.
Lori Kaithan, CEO Swiss Exams, will hold a presentation with the topic: "Positive impact of Cambridge English computer-based (CB) exams".
The general aim of this conference is to tackle current testing and assessment practices in the classroom and analyze how far the principles of assessment literacy have been incorporated by ELT professionals into their work. We would like participants to critically analyze their current assessment practices and determine how far they have come in implementing sound assessment practices in their classrooms. We would also like to look at the increasing number of projects that aim to promote and increase assessment literacy around the world and analyze what some of the outcomes have been.
Workshop in Chur with John Potts: In this practical workshop, we’ll look at the characteristics of the various text types that students at B2 and C1 commonly need to be able to produce, including letters, reports and essays. Then we’ll explore some practical classroom activities that will help to develop your learners’ range of writing skills, including a focus on language alongside the writing skills themselves.
This presentation event is specifically for teachers, head-teachers, academic directors and directors of private as well as public schools who are interested in Computer-Based testing and have prepared or will prepare candidates for computer-based testing. As we will be introducing the newest Cambridge English Computer-based test “Linguaskill” the invitation is extended to all BULATS Service Providers in Switzerland.
In this practical workshop, we’ll establish and explore the assessment scales that are applied to the writing component in Cambridge English Advanced (C1). Then we’ll apply these criteria to sample scripts for the Part One essay task, and as time permits to some Part Two tasks. At the same time, we’ll incorporate a focus on giving formative feedback that will help your learners to develop their writing skills.
