Project

Understanding the development of student feedback literacy in the L2 writing classroom
The project has three aims: 1) examine how, and to what extent elementary students develop feedback literacy through the use of writing portfolios; 2) investigate how, and to what extent such development influences text revisions and writing improvement; and 3) investigate the factors influencing the development of student feedback literacy in elementary writing classrooms.
Project Start Year: 2022, Principal Investigator(s): MAK, Wing Wah Pauline 麥詠華
 
Assessment as Learning through Portfolio Assessment in the Second Language Writing Classroom
This study examines the effectiveness of the use of portfolio assessment (PA) with a focus on assessment as learning (AaL) in improving students' writing abilities, investigate the attitude of teachers and students towards the use of PA to promote AaL in the teaching and learning of writing, as well as explore the challenges teachers face and support they need in its implementation through a year-long integration of AaL-oriented portfolios as an assessment innovation in elementary writing classrooms.

Enhancing Student's English Proficiency, Academic Achievement, Critical Thinking and English Learning Motivation through Digital and Traditional Story-telling 通過數字和傳統的故事講述提高學生的英語水平,學業成就,批判性思維和英語學習動機
This research aims at comparing the impact of digital and traditional story-telling methods on students’ English proficiency, academic achievement, critical thinking, and English learning motivation, which will be run through three major events sequentially including storytelling training workshops, digital storytelling programme and storytelling competition among primary school students. The results gathered from observation, focused-group interviews and pre-and post- activity surveys will not only offer a foundation for school teachers and parents to prepare for the most appropriate guidance of story-reading according to the students’ backgrounds, but also develop teaching packages for training both pre-service and in-service teachers on how to implement DST and TST in local schools.
