This year’s MOFET online seminar for the teaching of Hebrew to beheld between January 7 – 17, 2019, will focus on assessment and challenges it poses to teachers and to the planning of learning processes. Assessment is a central component in teaching and learning processes, and in order to perform it correctly and effectively, professional knowledge and mastery of skills are required. In the field of language instruction in general and teaching Hebrew as an additional language, special issues must be addressed, including: How to assess the mastery of language skills (reading comprehension, listening comprehension, written expression, and verbal expression)? Which methods of assessment are appropriate, and which are not? How can technological applications help evaluate?

The seminar's target audience is education professionals (teachers, lecturers and teacher trainers), policymakers and decision-makers and educators from Israel and around the world.
