This workshop is intended for postsecondary Japanese language educators who feel they have had limited training and experience in assessment (including testing), but want to improve Japanese language assessment practices in their home institutions. If this is your situation, we encourage you to apply!
Applicant Eligibility: Faculty members and Ph.D. students who are engaged in Japanese language education at postsecondary institutions are eligible to apply. Fluency in Japanese and English is required. Participants are expected to participate in sessions in English and Japanese and present their classroom assessment tool construction projects in English toward the end of the workshop. If the participants are faculty or staff at U.S. institutions, travel stipends of up to $1000 may be provided.
The deadline for application form submissions (January 31, 2012) has passed. Thank you for your interest.
