Abstract [en]

That recent research increasingly recognises the role of teachers as the most important factor in student achievement further emphasises the need for teachers to develop their professional learning as a lifelong skill, and for administrators to include this in teacher evaluation as a quality assurance tool. However as professional development (PD) involves independent learning, which is highly dependent on teacher motivations, assessing this seemingly non-assessable work could have a counter effect if set on a rigidly compulsory and judgmental basis. The paper introduces the role of assessment, in the light of motivation, in supporting teacher PD and is demonstrated with findings from a framework recently conducted in a university in Vietnam. It explains why this ‘assessment for motivation’ was able to boost teacher motivation in their learning and promote sustainable PD. It is hoped to offer some helpful insights into assessment and its link with educational improvement that can be used in similar pedagogical situations.
