Developing Assessments 
For the Second Language Classroom

July 18–22, 2016

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 classroom 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 know and can do.

After an overview of assessment fundamentals including selecting tools that match your purpose for assessment, the institute will explore a variety of topics: characteristics of performance, proficiency, and standards-based assessment; role of portfolios and self-assessment using can-do statements; and creation of rubrics and scoring guides. Participants will develop a standards-based performance assessment unit for their teaching context using Backward Design. 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.
