Online assessments are an integral part of language teaching today. Some programs rely solely on online assessments while others incorporate them to varying degrees in different formats. This webinar will discuss different types of online assessments, their aims and goals, different targets, skills and levels, and different classes of languages. We will raise some common and uncommon issues when designing and implementing online assessments in less commonly taught languages.
