If you missed the event, or want to review it again, you can now watch the webinar online.
Many teachers get into language teaching because they are better at dealing with words than with numbers. However, there is no getting away from marking and test scores! In this webinar, we will discuss all things scoring related: percentages and pass marks, standardised scores and scale scores, marking and weighting, and more in order to help teachers understand better how it all works and what it all means.
If you attend our series of Understanding Assessment webinars you can collect a Digital Open Badge. Find out more about Open Badges and how you can use them to support your professional development.
