Learning-Oriented Assessment in Large-Scale Testing

Morgan, Siân

This paper reports two presentations from the TCCRISLS 2014 which address a newly emerging area of inquiry – the interface between Learning-oriented assessment (LOA) and large-scale summative assessments. The surveyed papers propose that LOA should be introduced into summative testing to help test-takers to demonstrate their best performance. The report will also make links between the papers and the dimensions of Turner and Purpura’s (2015) framework of LOA.
