This training program combines online and face-to-face workshop formats to provide training in language assessment. The purpose of the workshop is to help STARTALK program directors, instructors, and/or teacher trainers learn about and plan for assessment in their STARTALK summer programs, with particular attention to assessing language growth in short-term STARTALK programs. The program begins with online modules on the basics of assessment. The two initial modules are followed by a three-day workshop at the Center for Applied Linguistics which is followed by three additional online modules. The workshop content focuses on developing high-quality assessment tasks that are appropriate for STARTALK learners. During the workshop, participants will focus on developing authentic language assessment tasks and rubrics for their programs. Additional modules will focus on topics of particular interest to participants and build on knowledge gained during the workshop. This workshop is limited to staff from STARTALK-funded programs.
