Reliable Online Admissions Testing – Supporting Recruitment in a COVID Context

International schools by their very nature have a high number of EAL learners among their pupil cohorts, but not all assessments typically used by these schools are appropriate for these learners.

This webinar, presented by Dr. Helen Wood, Head of School Partnerships at Password Testing, introduces both educators and admissions staff to key research regarding language proficiency and EAL learner progress and attainment. 

Together we consider the roles of validity and reliability in the testing and placement of EAL learners in English medium instructions schools. The webinar content raises your awareness of the language required for success in the socio-academic environment of the international school and helps senior members of staff consider how to improve the efficiency and accuracy of their admissions assessments, whilst simultaneously adapting to the COVID-19 context.
