Reflections on TCCRISLS 2014: Roundtable on Learning-Oriented Assessment in Language Classrooms and Large-Scale Assessment Contexts

Han-Ting Liu, Heidi

Teachers College, Columbia University in the City of New York hosted the 3rd Roundtable in Second Language Studies featuring learning-oriented assessment (LOA) in October, 2014. The three-day conference oversaw a total of 19 presentations, including six theoretical papers on LOA in applied linguistics, three theoretical papers on LOA in mainstream education, three application papers on LOA, and seven empirical papers of LOA, as well as two discussant sessions. The theme, learning-oriented assessment (LOA), addresses the recent shift of focus in assessments from teacher-centered to learner-centered, proposing how assessment can, and probably should, facilitate learning.
