The STARTALK Performance Assessment Training Program at the Center for Applied Linguistics will use a blended online and face-to-face format to train up to 40 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 seven online modules, two webinars, and a three-day face-to-face workshop for a total of 41 instructional hours over the course of 7 continuous weeks. Participants who complete the program will develop performance assessment tasks, adapt rating rubrics, create self-assessment tools for students, and create a standards- and curriculum-based assessment plan with performance objectives. Participants will be prepared to continue to develop these tools and integrate best practices in assessment with best practices in instruction into their teaching. They will receive a certificate of completion at the end of the course. After active instruction ends, the online modules will remain available as a continued reference and for sharing materials and resources until February 28, 2018.
