This research aimed to understand the current state of school-based assessment literacy of ESL teachers in Sri Lanka. The study implemented a survey-based online questionnaire administered to a sample of 250 ESL teachers representing all the 25 districts selected through stratified random sampling technique to capture their self-perceived literacy and frequency of practice of SBA. Statistical analysis was carried out through descriptive as well as thematic analysis. The research findings point out the strengths and weaknesses in SBA literacy of ESL teachers. Among strengths, competence in performance assessment and practice of communicating assessment results are prominent, while competence in grading and digital assessment practices are highlighted among weaknesses. Overall, ESL teachers view themselves as moderately competent in language assessment, and they exhibit reluctance to do away with traditional assessment methods. The study discusses implications of research findings, and offers suggestions for future research and recommendations for improvement of SBA program as well as ESL teacher preparation programs.
