The ALTE course in oral assessor recruitment and training is suitable for those of you who are new to recruiting and training oral assessors and those wishing to review their current practices. 

This short course of two 90 minute sessions will look at face-face and online assessor training from assessor and interlocutor perspectives. There will be an introductory overview of the process starting with an initial exploration of an oral assessor ‘s role and responsibilities through to training, standardisation and ongoing quality assurance programmes. In the recruitment and selection section we will consider issues such as conflict of interest, contractual obligation and effective screening processes. The training section will include delivery mode options,  suggestions for content, for example the number and type of exam performances required and  the frequency and timing of training sessions. The final section will look at methods to maintain assessor reliability and consistency and ensure that assessors are adhering to the required standards.  

This  course is designed to be interactive and attendees will work in groups sharing ideas and experiences. You will be asked to complete a short questionnaire  at registration on your  testing context to ensure the course is shaped to your needs. 

The course will be delivered by Cathy Taylor, ALTE expert member. Cathy has 15 years experience in recruiting and training oral assessors.
