Transcript of Assessment

What different types of assessment exist?
Assessment should not focus only on language. Cognitive skills, communication skills, creativity and interpersonal skills can all also be assessed.
Types of assessment
Assessment criteria
Supporting assessment
The assessment criteria are statements which help us judge how well a learner has achieved the
learning outcomes.
Can-do statements are an example.
Think about:
The language of the question
The type of answer you are asking for (open/closed,short/extended, individual/group, oral/written, objective/subjective)
Clarity of instructions
Supporting language
Vol XCIII, No. 311
Discuss in groups
The focus of assessment
Which did you mention? Can you add more to the list?
Reasons for assessing
Why do we assess?

What are 'assessment criteria'?
To find out what they have learned.
To find out what their strengths and weaknesses are.
In order to give them feedback on their language use.
To find out what motivates them.
To monitor their progress.
To identify what they need support with and find out how to support them with these things.
To find out if your teaching has been effective.
For the school records, or for the parents.
To give them a "pass" or "fail" grade.
Assessment in CLIL
We will be talking about:
The focus of assessment
Types of assessment
Supporting learners during assessment
What are learning outcomes?
Look back at the reasons for assessing.
How could you assess your learners in each case?
summative v formative
Summative assessment:
assesses learners knowledge up to a point in time
helps teachers pinpoint problems
external exams
diagnostic tests
formative assessment:
part of the learning process
highlights learning and development
usually informal
based around questioning observing and collecting data
often peer or self assessment
Why not ask your learners to design their own assessments?
For example:

Learning outcome
By the end of the lesson, the learners will be able to...
name the 8 planets of the solar system in order and remember a fact about each planet.
read complex texts about the planets and select the information they need to answer specific questions.
preparing and giving an oral presentation about an imaginary planet.

Possible assessment criteria
The learners...
...can name and order the planets
...can state at least one fact about each of the planets
...can answer specific questions questions witha reasonable degree of accuracy.
...can give an oral presentation and communicate their ideas successfully
...can apply factual information to a creative task
Learning outcomes:
What were your learners able to do after the lesson, that they couldn't do (or couldn't do well) before it?
Think of a class/ topic you covered recently.

What were your learning outcomes?

Your learning outcomes tell you what your assessment criteria should be.
How are learners supported in these assessment activities?
TKT CLIL Course, Kay Bentley, Cambridge University Press.
Look through the unit. Think of one possible activity you could give your learners in order to perform
formative assessment
