Thomas Sauer - From Practice to Performance: Bringing the Assessment Lens to a STARTALK Program

Back to 2016 Fall Conference Presentations

This multimedia production was developed for the STARTALK 2016 Fall Conference by Thomas Sauer.

Deciding why, what, when, and how to assess student learning might be some of the most critical decision-making points for any instructor in a STARTALK program. Beginning with the intentional design of a learning plan and the implementation of meaningful formative and summative assessment, the feedback learners receive and how instructors respond to the evidence of learning are the true indicators of a successful program. This workshop connects some of the many foundational elements of assessment to prepare learners to develop ownership in the language and move from practice to performance and advance student language proficiency.
