Language teachers have been searching for years for cost-effective tools to help support assessment of student language proficiency. Washington State is launching a pilot of just such a tool: LinguaFolio.

http://www.ncssfl.org/LinguaFolio/index.php?linguafolio_index

LinguaFolio is a portfolio assessment instrument designed to support individuals in setting and achieving their goals for learning languages.

It includes these three components:

  • Biography, where information about a student’s language background, intercultural activities, and the self-assessment checklists are documented,
  • Dossier, where samples of a student’s work document progress over time, and
  • Passport, where formal qualifications, certificates or diplomas, and achievements are recorded, along with a summary of self-assessments that describe competency with different languages.

This three-fold approach, based on the European Language Portfolio, enables language learners of all ages and levels to document their language learning as they move along the continuum towards greater proficiency.

This 3-part workshop will introduce LinguaFolio and its components and allow language educators to delve into the LinguaFolio checklists in greater detail – to actually tailor LinguaFolio for their own language classes from elementary level to high school and beyond. You may come for all three segments or one or two. (You need to attend all three hours in order to receive clock hours.)
