Gifu JALT:

Program-Tailored Student Placement

Date: Saturday, March 17th, 2012 Time: 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Speaker: David Laurence (Chubu University) and Matt Smith (Sugiyama Jogakuen University)

The presenters will share the process of creating a student placement test at a university-level English program from design to implementation, showing how a single test based on receptive skills was replaced with two parallel tests based on productive skills: one speaking test based on the SPEAK test, and one writing test based on a learner corpus. The presentation will conclude by discussing the practicalities of implementing a new placement test from an ELT management perspective.
