Assessing Learning

I always keep in mind when assessing students to use a variety of different assessment tools. Marai Melania Rosa
I assess the children's work and development of their skills by direct observation, by taking some mental and written notes, and by encouraging and motivating them. Helena Santos
I strongly believe assessment is more than testing. in children reception skills outweigh production skills so a good way to evaluate their language competence is through their response to language stimuli. For example when I teach them a song, a poem or a rhyme I use those same resources to check their learning progress. Helena Santos
Assessment should always be integrated into the learning experience. The method of assessment should mirror the method of learning. Assessment should be fair and clear and the students should know what is expected. CAtai Lopes
I also use informal assessment by direct observation of my young learners’ work in the classroom, their interest and engagement in the activities, their behaviour in the classroom, and I always try to give them a positive feedback and encouragement to keep up the good work or to do better.. Helena Teixeira
Formative Assessment
I try to make my students reflect on their actions - whether they relate to class activities or behaviour - and I always give them my feedback on their behaviour, learning, achievement, values, etc. and I do it no matter what, when or where. It is important to have a feedback on what you do and what you can do to make it better or to improve. Mara Tome
assessment should focus in what the learner can do not the opposite. It should motivate the learners to correct their mistakes but not to cause stress or anxiety that demotivate them. Sandra Goncalves
. I use different types of assessment in my classes: formal informal, self-evaluation or peer assessment, when they work in pairs or in group. They like to help and give each other a feedback, it makes them feel important, capable and responsible. Sandra Malheiro
I also implement self-assessment (at the end of some tasks) in my classes because it is important for me to see what they think about their work and commitment. Isabel Alves
Students love peer assessment and they are usually fair. I think this is a way of getting them to be more attentive to what others are saying or doing. Sonia Gomes
Different types of Assessment
Self assessement sheets;
multiple choice questions;
work presentations;
direct observation-

otal Physical Response activities (games and songs);
Presentations (role-plays, poetry reading)
contests (e.g. Spelling Bee)
listening comprehensions (numbers dictation, colouring dictation, drawing according to instructions)
self-assessment and peer assessment
direct observation - to check the performance of linguistic and non-linguistic features as motivation, interest and engagement

Your opinions
Assessment is an integral part of instruction, as it determines whether or not the goals of education are being met. Helena Almeida
Assessment should be fair and we should apply the same criteria to all of the learners.
Maria Cristina Torre
Assessment is a "world" and it does not have to be stressful, it can be done in a natural ambiance using different activities, games, songs, word searches, matching.
Sonia Gomes
believe assessment is about checking for understanding in an effective way in order to make our students improve their skills.
Marcia Amorim
I believe that we should combine summative evaluation with formative. Of course that, the younger, the less summative evaluation we should use. Furthermore, younger learners need to learn values and attitudes and these cannot be evaluated through summative tests.
Catarina Pereira
Assessment allows us teachers to understand the effectiveness of our teaching as well as evaluate learning development of our students.
Blandinha da CunhaI
It's important for us because it's a guideline to know if our teaching methods are working and which students need more help. It's important for students to realize where are their difficulties and stands as a way for getting them to work harder
. Isabel Alves
I also try to assess my students work through encouragment. I prefer to emphasize their success rather than point out their mistakes.
Rita Antonia
It is an important aspect of the process of learning. Catia Lopes
I decided to use one simple notebook for everything. Students can thus write down, draw, etc as well as glue or stick or stapple the hand outs by chronological order.
Mara Tome
It helps them to reflect on their learning process and it creates a positive awareness in the students. What I mean is that it gives them a sense of reward (children like to go through their works), they feel reassured by knowing that they spend so much time in school by they're learning and it's useful for them.
Blandinha da Cunha
portfolios could be a type of assessment and I completely agree as they help student creating strategies to organise the information they learn. These portfolios can also be exchanged among students, so that they could improve their language taking advantage of others’ knowledge and, besides, even parents can be up to date concerning what their kids are doing.
Catarina Pereira
I use a portfolio which is made of a collection of students’ work over the school year. Their folders do not include reflections upon each entry, since I think this is too demanding for these age levels, but still the students, the parents, and I can measure change. At the end of each learning unit, I make a list of goals (content as well as attitude) to be achieved and students express through symbols (faces) how they feel about each one. Feedback is vital in the language learning process, since it allows an overview of the language learning process.
Cristina Torre
Thank you!!
Adapting to SS needs

Reducing response materials for content area testing.
◦Providing a version of the test with simplified language.
◦Simplifying directions
◦Reading test questions aloud
◦Supplying word banks for tests.
◦Providing matching activities.
◦Extending time to complete the tests.
◦Using peers interpreters.
◦Allowing the student to respond orally rather than in written form
◦Using portfolios to authentically assess student progress.
