Presenter

Mr Tim Goodier

Tim Goodier is a member of the core authoring group for the CEFR Companion Volume with New Descriptors, and a consultant for the Council of Europe for the further development of the CEFR. His former roles in education include Head of Academic Development (Eurocentres), teacher, teacher trainer, examiner, course developer, school inspector and Eaquals Trustee. He won a British Council ELTons award for his MA dissertation with King’s College London concerning teacher perspectives on the pedagogic exploitation of CEFR can-do descriptors.

Agenda

How might the new can-do statements for mediation in the CEFR be used to assess progress in this area? The CEFR offers a range of scales describing different mediation activities and strategies that reflect real-world communication, but it is up to us as educators to select from them and decide whether to use or adapt them as success criteria. Their use is not compulsory and not all descriptor scales suit all approaches to assessment. In this webinar we will explore how using can-do statements to align learning aims with learning outcomes can promote assessment for learning. We will also look at the role mediation might play in proficiency assessment, and relevant task types.
