We have to be realistic about the amount of language that our students can learn within the time constraints that we have.
Grade is divided into categories or “standards” so that students are able to identify their strengths and weaknesses.
Summative assessments should be given after it is certain that 80% of students are at an 80% proficiency on current material.
Writing and Speaking reflect students’ ability to produce language and are the highest level skills so I value them at 15% each in level one, 20% each in level 2, and 25% each in levels 3 and 4.
Grammar and Vocabulary knowledge are less important but essential parts of language learning so I value them at 5% each.
Cultural knowledge is also a component of my program and I value it at 10%
Write down the story that you told in class and have students read it. Circle as you go.
As a summative assessment of structures studied, give a writing assignment of telling a story based on pictures. Grade categories include use of new vocabulary, correctness of structures, and ease of expression.
MAKE READING REALISTIC: It’s a novel and your kids may just want to read it for enjoyment. If you test, aim for performance based assessments rather than reading comprehension quizzes.
