Assessing Performance: Moving from Chapter Tests to Authentic Assessments

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

It's time to let go of chapter tests and focus on what really matters - what students can do with language! In this session, the presenter will look at how to transform assessments into meaningful, authentic, and engaging ways to capture student progress. Integrating Can-Do statements and proficiency targets, and focusing on the three modes of communication, the presenter will share examples of performance assessments and practice transforming some typical language topics and developing assessments for use in any language classroom.
