Formative and Summative Assessment Belonging Challenges Creativity Discovery Exploring Time and Place Identity Well-being
Formative Assessment for learning can take place throughout the daily lessons of a unit, providing helpful feedback to both teacher and learners. It tells learners how well they know and understand the content of the lesson. Learners reflect on their progress toward the goals.

Formative During pair or group work, circulate and monitor individual learners for staying in the target language (T), for their accuracy (A) on specific structures, for their ability to listen (L) and respond appropriately, and for their ability to be kind (K) by being an equal conversational partner in an activity (T.A.L.K.)
Formative T.A.L.K. scores allow teachers to track learner performance during various speaking activities. T.A.L.K Scores: +Consistency Few Difficulties - Many Difficulties Category Target Language AccuracyListenKind Student A +- Student B + +- Student C
Formative Exit Slips - Exit slips work well when the teacher would like to see in writing how well an individual learner is able to meet the lesson objective. - Learners can be asked to write words and phrases that explained an expression introduced in class. - Collect the exit slips as learners leave. - Review the exit slips and pull out the ones for learners who did not make sufficient progress toward the objective. - Provide additional support to those learners during the next lesson.
Formative - Students reflect and evaluate their performance based on their global competencies. - Learners provide evidence of understanding.
Global Competency Learning Activity Formative Assessment (representative samples from beginning to end of unit) How does this activity support the unit goals or performance tasks? Mode of Communication Interculturality Self Community World Watch video clip of song, “Ma Vie au Soleil” (My Life in the Sun), and list activities that relate to a more relaxed lifestyle. Explore elements of a balanced lifestyle InterpretiveS Use Liberation (newspaper) headline and article on stress at school.

Learn about the impact of school on lifestyles Interpersonal Interpretive S,C,W
Global Competency Learning Activity Formative Assessment (representative samples from beginning to end of unit) How does this activity support the unit goals or performance tasks? Mode of Communication Interculturality Self Community World Read an article on how French teenagers spend their free time. Design survey questions to use with learners studying French. Create a graphic organizer to compare school results to those in the article. Discuss the results in groups. Explore how French teens spend free time and make comparisons Interpersonal Interpretive Presentational C,W Work in groups to create a multimedia presentation that explains metro, on the context of a teenager’s life in the United States. Create a product that explains the lifestyle of a U.S. teenager to French teens Interpersonal Presentational C,W
Summative - Teacher creates rubrics to provide the learner with clear criteria by which the performance will be evaluated. - Rubrics provide feedback on the strengths of the performance and suggestions for continuous improvement. - Rubrics help learners Set goals and take responsibility for their learning by clarifying expectations for performance. Develop their ability to self-assess their own work in terms of quality. - Rubrics help others (parents, administrators, colleagues) understand the criteria for excellent performance - Rubrics increase an assessment’s reliability through well- defined criteria that can be applied consistently across individual performance. - Rubrics help align criteria to standards, curriculum, and performance descriptors.
Summative - Sample Performance Assessment Summative Performance Assessment These tasks allow learners to demonstrate how well they have met the goals of the unit. They are integrated throughout the unit. The template encourages multiple interpretive tasks. The interpretive tasks inform the content of the presentational and interpersonal tasks. The tasks should incorporate 21st century skills. Interpretive Mode Presentational Mode Learners will create a presentation based on multiple sources of information highlighting ways to promote A BALANCED LIFESTYLE FOR TEENAGERS. The presentation will be shared with another French class. Interpersonal Mode In pairs or small groups, learners share what they have learned about their lifestyle and the lifestyle of teenagers in (France) in terms of a balanced lifestyle. They compare their daily routines and schedules and make and respond to suggestions to adjust their lifestyle. Learners will read a blog written by a teenager where he discusses his activities. They will demonstrate comprehension by answering questions about main ideas and will complete a graphic organizer based on information found in the text. Learners will watch a commercial for a product that promises to make life easier or less stressful and will demonstrate comprehension by analyzing the effectiveness of the message and product. Learners will read a schedule of a top athlete to determine how he spends the hours in his day, deciding what elements are part of a balanced lifestyle and what is missing.
