Resumen
This chapter lays out a framework for the reconsideration of assessment systems used in language modules in the wake of the move to emergency remote teaching. It describes how the principles of holism, flexibility, choice and digital equity have Emerged as the pillars of the reflection on assessment practices, looking into the potential implications of adopting these principles as the default foundations for future assessment systems. A case is made for the design of a model where online assessment grants all students equal opportunities to succeed, regardless of their technical, physical, human and social resources and circumstances, in both face-to-face and online teaching. Several aspects of assessment are considered, such as the nature, planning, scheduling and timing of tasks. The ongoing debate about the proliferation of academic misconduct in assessment practices—not only in language modules but widely in higher education—is factored in the discussion about the implementation of the principles mentioned above. The chapter concludes with a set of practical recommendations aimed at helping teachers to put these principles into practice. In all, the chapter offers language practitioners a resource for reflection and analysis of current and future assessment practices, focusing on how we can make the most of the learnings acquired during the move to online teaching to make assessment more diverse, inclusive and resilient.
