Proficiency Portfolios, Student Self-Assessment & Feedback Practices for the Proficiency Based Classroom

We will explore how feedback can be a powerful tool in the language acquisition process and in helping students to grow. We’ll also demonstrate how students can interact with the feedback to reflect and set goals as part of the assessment conversation between teacher and student. We will discuss how teachers could sustainably share observations of key student behaviors (like using the target language) as well as their progress toward meeting language proficiency and performance criteria (ACTFL guidelines) with or without attaching a grade. Participants will be able to implement ideas into their own practices immediately. The presenter’s classroom is a Proficiency-Based, 90%+ TL environment with portfolio assessment; she will share examples and technology resources from her program in order to inspire more regular feedback in other classrooms. Students will visit to share their experiences with these systems. Participants will: leave with ideas for sustainable systems to provide students with regular feedback on proficiency and performance growth. create a goal for incorporating more feedback in their own practices. be equipped with strategies for having students reflect on feedback and self-assess their own learning. Discounts available if you sign-up for more than one workshop.
