VIC2021 Keynote: Achieving Positive Impact by Design in the Vietnamese Context

Assessment doesn't have to be threatening and arduous but can be an effective tool in promoting language learning and in guiding students to improve their communication skills. In this session, I will talk about the key concept of positive impact by design and the current trends in Learning Oriented Assessment (LOA) that seek to integrate learning and assessment more effectively. I will discuss how formative and summative functions of assessments can work holistically to build more effective learning ecosystems in the Vietnamese context. I will conclude my talk with some ideas about how LOA can help improve educational standards in the post-Covid era, especially with the support of EdTech. Teachers have a key role to play in this; they will need to engage with these issues in their own schools and communities, and to be prepared for this challenging but exciting period ahead.
