This webinar aims at answering fundamental questions of language test design and development and providing practical guidance for Vietnamese K-12 English teachers.

It then introduces how to identify test constructs in relation to the language competency framework, a course curriculum and its expected learning outcomes in order to assure the systematicity and substantive grounding of the assessments. This is followed by a detailed discussion of the concepts of difficulty and complexity levels of test items, test specification, and test task types. The webinar uses specific examples and input from Vietnamese K-12 English teachers of the new textbook for its practice activities. It also recommends some resources for teachers for their test development.
