Abstract

Writing assessment literacy refers to the ability to understand and use different methods and tools to assess writing effectively. It involves knowing writing assessment principles, skills of assessment, and practical application of assessments that can be used to evaluate writing. By developing writing assessment literacy, educators can better support student learning and growth in writing and promote greater equity and fairness in writing assessment practices. The current study investigates the insights from EFL teachers at KRI universities on writing assessment literacy. A quantitative method is applied to collect data and analyse the results. A questionnaire is designed to collect data among selected EFL teachers across four KRI universities. The results indicate that EFL teachers are literate enough based on the questionnaire and share good insights. The results are generally positive, although there are some parts of the results which show weaknesses. The EFL teachers need more time and effort to improve since the case is significant. The results also indicate that EFL teachers are less literate in knowledge compared to skill and practice. They are skilful enough in writing assessments and can practice their shared literacy.
