Formative and Summative Assessments to Guide Language Learning

D E S C R I P T I O N: 

Assessment is an essential element in every lesson and unit plans in order to gauge learners’ increasing proficiency in all three modes of communication. Designing and adapting assessments for your individual lesson plans and your learners’ unique needs requires intentional planning. Which assessments should you use and how often? What data are we looking for? How do we design effective measures of what learners can do with what they know?

In this VLM, join 2012 ACTFL National Language Teacher of the Year, Yo Azama, to take a deep dive into the theory and practical application of assessments to guide your students' language learning. Helpful resources and thought-provoking discussion questions interspersed throughout each module make this virtual learning module a must-watch for new and veteran educators alike.
