SLA new assessment during CMO due to Covid-19

It is always a practice for my course, MPPZ1103 Second Language Acquisition, or better known as SLA, to have a final exam for its summative assessment. However, this semester, it took a different turn. Due to Covid-19 pandemic, Control Movement Order (CMO) had been implemented and university was ordered to be closed since 18th March 2020. I was not sure if it’s a good or unpleasant news for my students when CMO was in place. I guessed it must be something to cheer about especially when they found out that the final exam will be replaced with another assignment. Yayyy! (I bet this was their reaction when I announced it to them).

Well, the new assessment is a bit like the final exam question no 2 where students have to design classroom activities and discuss their underpinning SLA theories. Hence, I took the same approach for this new assessment but I added a mock teaching component to it. The students had to design a lesson plan, discuss the activities’ undepinning SLA theories and finally teach it online. The classmates acted as the students. It was great to see how my students got to be so creative and innovative with their teaching. Some of these interesting approaches include the use of quizziz, padlet, wheel of names, hand gestures and live demonstration of pizza making! I will share the link to their video once I received it from my students. Until then, enjoy these photos!
