LINGUAFOLIO : Can-Do Learning and Student Self-Assessment National Chinese Language Conference May 1, 2009 Dr. Jacque Bott Van Houten Janna Chiang KY Department of Education Jefferson County Public Schools
A standards-based, self-directed formative assessment tool that records ongoing learner progress and, along with external summative assessment results, provides a comprehensive view of student performance.
Each day, post on the board 1-3 learning goals in the form of can- do statements, in the target language. Go over the goals at the beginning of class, refer to them when relevant during class, and provide a way for students to self-assess the extent to which they meet each goal.
