Developing summative assessment literacy: A longitudinal study of pre-service and novice language teachers (SALLT)

The purpose of SALT is to investigate pre- and in-service teachers’ summative assessment literacy at the end of their training as well as during their first years of teaching. The project will also consider factors influencing this literacy based on teacher cognition and language assessment theories as a conceptual framework.

Employing a longitudinal multiple case-study approach, we will collect quantitative and qualitative data (involving questionnaires, interviews and document analyses) from pre-service teachers at the end of teacher education and later from novice teachers at the end of the first years of teaching.

We expect the results will provide new insights into how pre-service teachers and novice teachers develop assessment literacy within a period of 1–2 years. In addition, the results will help us offer recommendations with direct relevance to design new assessment initiatives within teacher education and in schools.
