Abstract

It may be assumed that language marking scheme at universities is universal regardless of culture. However, this assumption will be challenged by this presentation. Language assessment criteria are different depending on each higher educational institution even within the British universities and some language teachers may have less workload in marking and grading students’ essay writing than others. This presentation specifically looks at the writing section on the marking scheme which was used for Japanese Level 1 at a British STEM university in 2016/17 and explains the characteristics, strengths, weaknesses and implications for language teachers and students. In the 10 minutes discussion/question, it is hoped to have an opportunity for open discussion to compare the similarities or differences of the assessment criteria of other disciplines or languages.
