This chapter focuses on the Writing, Speaking and Classroom Language Assessment modules—the three areas that are assessed by scales and descriptors in the LPATE. The scales and descriptors adopted in each LPATE paper, namely Writing, Speaking and Classroom Language Assessment, are first introduced, followed by a presentation of tasks that were used in different modules. This chapter focuses on how these tasks aided the development of the scales assessed in the LPATE, thus helping participants meet the LPR. From a wider perspective, this chapter describes how an enhanced grasp of the Writing, Speaking and Classroom Language Assessment modules may contribute to teacher professional development.
