Taking the Guessing out of Assessing - Part 1

It’s one thing to have a general understanding of proficiency levels and use them to design curriculum and assessments, it’s another to monitor students and be able to identify their level of performance during performance assessments and even daily activities. This workshop will review common features of each proficiency level using actual student samples in order to connect general ideas of proficiency with the everyday work of the classroom teacher.

Understanding Proficiency Levels
If students are to acquire higher levels of language proficiency as a result of the time they invest in language learning, their teachers must fully understand what those levels are.  This session will delve into the ACTFL Proficiency Guidelines and will provide participants with specific descriptions of the levels of Novice, Intermediate, Advanced and Superior proficiency as well as video examples of each level.

Designing Proficiency Targets & Integrating Can-Do Statements

Without proficiency targets, teaching often becomes “covering material.” Current thinking informs us that when realistic proficiency targets are set for language courses, students are more likely to reach those targets and have a feeling that they can actually DO something with the language rather than just knowing rules about the language. Important to understand is that reaching proficiency targets is contingent upon intentional planning to get there. A look at the NCSSFL-ACTFL Can Do Statements will show how they can help teachers plan for and reach specific levels of proficiency and capture the student’s interest and commitment for learning at the same time.

Playing the Rub(r)iks Cube: Effective Feedback for Learners - Part 1

Designed not to make grading easier, rubrics have long been identified as a powerful tool teachers can use to provide meaningful feedback to learners. Be careful though: not all rubrics are made the same! This session will explore and use several proficiency inspired rubrics that allow teachers to implement performance-based assessments and provide students with what they need and want the most: timely and personalized feedback that will help them grow as language learners.

Curriculum Planning through the Lens of Backward Design

The Backward Design concept has been providing teachers solid guidance on curriculum and instructional planning for several decades, and this common-sense approach still holds great promise for today’s language teachers.  Through an examination of the backward design concept itself and through various curriculum templates, including those from ACTFL, participants will explore the use of these tools for their own purposes and within their own institutional settings.

Designing Performance Assessment Tasks & Integrated Performance Assessments

In learning a new a skill, the proof of learning it is being able to use it. So, the measure of a language student’s success is being able to use the language for meaningful communication.  Within that mindset, the “assessment” component of learning becomes the most critical part--it’s where the student finds out if he can do it.  This session will focus on the critical need for language assessment to do just that--to provide students ways to demonstrate what they can do with the language they have learned through listening, speaking, reading and writing and within the context of the three modes of communication.  The emphasis is demonstration of what students can do, not simply the demonstration of knowledge.

From Practice to Performance (Assessment) - Part 1
While performance assessments are often used as a summative benchmark opportunity to gauge student growth, it’s the daily learning experiences a teacher designs that have a bigger impact on student performance. Where should a teacher start and how can they help their learners prepare for the performance assessments guiding a thematic unit? This session will identify daily assessment strategies teachers can use help learners process language input in order to develop the language ownership necessary to meet the identified learning targets.

Developing Rubrics
Most teachers acknowledge that performance cannot be measured using a 100-point scale, so rubrics work best to determine quality of demonstrated proficiency.  But designing quality rubrics that measure proficiency in an understandable and helpful way is a difficult task.  In this session participants will consider the characteristics of well-done rubrics and will examine a variety of rubrics that are being used with success in various places.

Drilling it down to the Lesson Plan
All levels of planning are important, but the most important planning a teacher does is at the lesson level.  Why?  Because that is the only part of your planning that your students see, and they don’t actually SEE your lesson plan, they experience it.  This session will lay out some of the important things teachers should think about as they go about planning meaningful and memorable learning experiences for students.

Aligning Grading Practices for Performance & Feedback
In order for teachers to truly implement a performance-based proficiency focused classroom several elements must be in place: proficiency targets, a thematic curriculum aligned with performance assessments, learning targets and lessons that allow students to meet the performance objectives of the curriculum. Yet, feedback that is focused on grades in order to support outdated grading practices can derail even the best efforts to bring change to the proficiency classroom. This session will ask teachers the tough questions to align what they know and believe about language learning with the grading practices they implement in their classrooms every day. A special focus will be placed on establishing systems that allow both teachers and learners to document student growth based on the instructional activities designed to meet daily, weekly or unit performance objectives.

Teaching for Proficiency Using the TELL Framework
Once the proficiency mindset to teaching has been embraced and curriculum and assessments designed to support it, the remaining critical ingredient is how the teacher implements it all.  Current research is replete with the message that the deciding factor in student success is the teacher--and it is not what the teacher knows that makes the difference but rather what the teacher does.  This session will focus on those research-based messages about what world language teachers should be doing to maximize the effects of teaching and learning.
