Designing School Evaluation for Special Language Needs Students
A Proposal for a Dynamic Model and the Role of Feedback
Language assessment in a classroom-based context is a complex and delicate topic, particularly when the student who is being assessed has Specific Linguistic Needs. This paper outlines a theoretical model for classroom-based assessment of students with Specific Needs. One of the key-points of the model will be feedback, intended both as a phase where results are shared with the students, families or tutors, but also as control system where the results measurements are reintroduced into the system to improve and adjust it.
