Developing Assessments

for the Second Language Classroom

July 27–31, 2015

Target Audience: Late elementary to postsecondary foreign language teachers as well as teacher educators and preservice FL teachers. The institute is not intended for ESL or immersion teachers.

Effective assessments support teaching and learning and are essential to helping students achieve higher levels of proficiency. Aligned with standards and benchmarks, they are at the core of curricular and instructional planning and engage students in meaningful activities that show what they can do.

After an overview of assessment fundamentals, the institute will explore a variety of topics: formative and summative assessment models; appropriate performance and proficiency levels; standards-based integrated performance assessment units; and documenting growth in cultural knowledge and understanding. Participants will develop a standards-based performance unit using Backward Design to fit their teaching context. The week will conclude with a focus on implications of standards-based performance assessment for higher levels of proficiency and articulation among levels of instruction.
