The training focuses on the knowledge of basic concept of assessment, principles of designing a good assessment, basic types of listening assessment, tips in selecting authentic materials and the skills involving the trainee teachers’ practices in developing listening assessment. Data were collected through pre and post-tests, pre-lesson notes, worksheets, reflective journal entries, and pre and post-projects. The finding shed light on the teachers’ changes in knowledge, skills, and disposition to develop listening assessment during the process and afterwards.
