Abstract

Abstract: as part of a major Scottish project on re-engineering of technology-based assessment practices linking three Higher Education institutions, a new assessment system has been implemented in the first year French Language course at the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, UK. The use of new teaching and assessment approaches has had to be balanced with the constraints of largely traditional pre-existing institutional structures. This presentation will cover the drivers behind the changes, the issues specific to the nature of language acquisition, the architecture of the new system and an evaluation of the changes in terms of costs, student satisfaction and an improvement in student results. It will show how assessment changes are indissociable from an in-depth re-think of the whole teaching process.
