Presented by Tim Goodier

How might the new can do statements for mediation in the CEFR be used to assess progress in this area? 

The CEFR offers a range of scales describing different mediation activities and strategies that reflect real-world communication, but it is up to us as educators to select from them and decide whether to use or adapt them as success criteria. Their use is not compulsory and not all descriptor scales suit all approaches to assessment. 

In this webinar we will explore how using can-do statements to align learning aims with learning outcomes can promote assessment for learning. We will also look at the role mediation might play in proficiency assessment, and relevant task types.
