Dr Karolina Kotorowicz-Jasińska is a graduate from Maria Curie-Skłodowska University in Lublin and holds a PhD degree in applied linguistics. Her teaching practice began for good when she was still a student and discovered that teaching English was great fun. Since then she has had an opportunity to work with different age groups at all proficiency levels. For many years Karolina was also doing her best to unravel the mysteries of ELT methodology to students of the English departments in Lublin and Warsaw. Karolina works as a DOS at a primary school in the suburbs of Warsaw where she helps the teachers of English to maximize their teaching potential.

School (even online) cannot exist without assessment. We need to test students for diagnostic purposes, but ‘traditional’ tests are far from perfect: they often fail to offer constructive feedback, cannot be carried out too often and certainly don’t make students feel positive. This is where formative assessment comes to the rescue. It creates a learner-friendly environment, helps students progress linguistically as well as in their life skills. In this webinar, Karolina Kotorowicz explores the basics of formative assessment and shows practical tips for an everyday classroom.
