LA 1.4 Outlining and Applying the Assessment System
|Learning Outcome||Pedagogical Intent||Student Position|
Understand how to select and administer norm-referenced language proficiency instruments.
Assessment: 25 pts.
TA: 15 Minutes
Teachers will be able to apply the assessment system to students they need to have assessed and placed.
Students have reviewed assessment purposes. They now consider the system for assessing and placing students using a case of a student.
1. Working with your colleagues create an outline of the placement process for ELs including identification, placement, exiting and monitoring ELs. Use the notes from the Video Segment you just watched or notes from the powerpoint and Resource 1.7 p. 38 in Gottlieb that you reviewed in LA 1.3.
2. Now in a group, read the assessment details (found below) about either Alex C if you teach in a secondary school or Xian O if you teach in an elementary school. (You might also want to use the handout “Hellman Chart" you used in LA 1.3 and the list of assessments there and from LA 1.1).
3. Outline the steps you would take with each student based on the system diagram you just made.
