Abstract

Student assessment has a powerful role in all educational contexts, also in the Finnish upper secondary school. Yet, in spite of its powerful role, there is rather little research on assessment and its practical implementation in foreign language teaching in upper secondary school. The aim of this study was to examine, with a questionnaire, how students (n = 146) in one upper secondary school experienced assessment as part of their English studies, what assessment methodology they had encountered and what they thought of the usefulness of these assessment methods. The article shows that most students appreciated assessment and found it accurate as well as quite varied in its methodology. However, assessment did not seem to feed forward very much. Furthermore, students’ individual experiences of assessment varied a great deal. In order for assessment to serve more students, it should be more multifaceted and guiding.
