Empowering EFL Learners through Asset-based Assessment (WS22), Paper
Asset-based assessment acknowledges the negative effects of the deficit-mindset fostered in traditional assessment techniques and strategies, particularly in the context of foreign language learning. Asset-based assessment in language education recognizes the reality that students learn English as a Foreign Language (EFL) effectively in an encouraging and non-threatening environment. Elucidating asset-based assessment within the context of positive change for EFL student empowerment, the presenter shall suggest and demonstrate varied assessment techniques and strategies which can boost the confidence of EFL learners and empower them to learn EFL with a positive disposition.
