    Performance-based assessment has gained more attention from ELT practitioners since the actual performances produced by students are evaluated in this type of assessment. However, the assessment of students’ performances involves more complicated procedures when compared with more traditional testing methods. This talk, therefore, will point out crucial considerations in adopting this type of assessment in a language class. First, the talk will introduce the concepts of performance-based language assessment and its major characteristics. Moreover, results will be presented from a research study aimed at examining the reactions of tertiary EFL teachers towards the use of performance-based language assessment. The last part of the talk will focus on how performance-based/classroom-based language assessment has been downplayed by national policies. Cases of national CEFR-based test development in Thailand will be used as illustrations.
