Criteria for Submission of Abstracts 

Academics, researchers, teachers and other educators are invited to submit presentation proposals that relate to the overall theme of Assessment for Learning and, in particular, to the following themes:

  • Developing teacher assessment literacy
  • Formative assessment for writing
  • Writing test items to promote learning

In particular, we are interested in assessment-in-action papers that provide insight into classroom practice and the in-service development of teaching and testing skills in the Indonesian Higher Education context.

The British Council plans to include quality papers in a symposium publication and on our website for those who are interested in writing up their presentations.
