VII Congresso DILLE - Didattica delle lingue e valutazione: società, scuola, università

Conference URL: http://dille2020.fileli.unipi.it/

Assessment is a process of evaluation with different purposes and features that is extensively used in both lower and higher education, as well as in society in general. It plays a crucial role in language education, involving learners, teachers, authors of teaching materials, certification centres, language policy makers, and all those working in the domain of language teaching. Reflection upon the relationship between language education and assessment, on its complexity and multifaceted nature is nowadays essential in the Italian context, in consideration of the links to international contexts where the discussion about assessment has a longstanding tradition, including in teacher training. This conference will provide the opportunity to reflect on and discuss several themes: assessment models, language assessment, assessment of teaching skills and teaching materials, and the opportunities offered by new technologies, to name but a few. The conference will tackle assessment also with respect to its impact in different educational contexts, such as schools and universities as well as in society.
Because of the multifarious nature of assessment as a research domain, the conference will offer the opportunity to take stock of the progress made on this topic in language teaching and to present the wide range of perspectives and tools found in Educational Linguistics, which places the latter at the forefront of translational practices and of the creation of synergies between linguistic and educational sciences.

We welcome proposals on the following themes:
1. assessment and its models
2. assessment of competence in Italian L1 and L2, foreign and L2 languages, minority languages
3. interlanguage, errors and grammars and their impact on assessment
