Assessing performance in the STARTALK Chinese Classroom

Chinese • July 6, 2010 July 16, 2010Residential Program
  • Concordia Language Villages, Bemidji, MN

This STARTALK course focuses on best practices in classroom assessment for both novice and experienced teachers of Chinese, K-16. The course provides an opportunity to share instructional goals across various levels and how they are assessed. Participants will explore the principles of standards-based assessment and the challenges of evaluation. Participants will examine various tools for formative and summative assessments to determine their appropriate use in helping document student learning progress. The course begins with an explanation of standards-based assessment with examples from classrooms and from Sen Lin Hu, the Chinese Language Village. Discussions will address performance based, alternative, and portfolio assessment. Included in portfolio assessment is the use of the Concordia Language Visa (CLVisa) which is a villager self-assessment tool of language proficiency and cultural understandings; it is based on the LinguaFolio. During the course, a Modified Oral Proficiency Interview familiarization workshop sponsored by the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL) will give participants a common understanding of the various levels of oral proficiency. With this background information, participants will design formative and summative assessments for use in their classrooms.
