Rethinking Assessment for Learning

The coronavirus, which spread in a blink of an eye throughout the world from early 2020, has changed our daily lives dramatically. The field of Japanese language education is no exception. In many educational settings, traditional face-to-face classes have been replaced by online classes, and many educational institutions must have been faced with a variety of problems.

One of the many problems is the effectiveness of assessment. This state of emergency has made it impossible to use assessment methods that have been taken for granted, and many of us may have been forced to consider what the essence of assessment has been until now. Perhaps, in experiencing this unprecedented state of emergency, there are new insights we can gain regarding the very meaning of evaluation. In this forum, we hope to rethink assessment itself and its place in teaching philosophy.

The keynote speeches on this theme will be given by Professor Kimi Kondo Brown (the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa) and Professor Seiichi Makino (Princeton University).

The Forum calls for presentations on this theme as well as any topic related to language education such as linguistics, heritage language education, or language acquisition. The deadline for submissions is January 15, 2021, and you can submit your presentation using the link on the left.
