    Summary

    The STARTALK Performance Assessment Training Program at the Center for Applied Linguistics will use a blended online and face-to-face format to train STARTALK educators representing all grade and experience levels and STARTALK languages on the fundamentals of performance-based assessment within the STARTALK context. The program will consist of four online modules, two webinars, and a three-day face-to-face workshop for a total of 38 instructional hours over the course of 5 continuous weeks. We will have two cohorts of 14 participants each beginning in either June or July. Participants who complete the program will develop performance assessment tasks, create and adapt rating rubrics, create feedback plans for sharing results with students, and create a standards- and curriculum-based assessment plan aligned with performance objectives. This focus program is designed to support the STARTALK principle of conducting performance-based assessment and is aligned to TELL criteria in the Performance & Feedback and Planning domains.
