The gap between perception and achievement, Peter Lahiff

Peter Lahiff of Future Learning, Ireland presented on 'The gap between perception and achievement' at the online, annual Future of English Language Teaching Conference (FOELT) in June 2021.

 

Abstract

There are always some students who, in advance of their end of course exam and straight after doing it, express a high level of confidence which is not reflected in their final result. Teachers find is difficult in advance to persuade students like this to put the work in and help them find the motivation afterwards to make another attempt. This talk is based on surveys of students preparing for their end of course exam which aimed to investigate this phenomenon and identify strategies for supporting those students who went on to underperform in their achievement exam.
