Working for positive outcomes?

Working for positive outcomes? The standards – curriculum alignment for Learning Languages and its reception by teachers.  Martin East. Assessment Matters 6: 2014

Though aimed at the NZ secondary NCEA assessments, this article carries some ideas that can be practically transferred to the primary sector.

  • The NZC  is a learner centred experiential model where learning occurs through experience and co-construction.
  • E-portfolios should be a place where students can submit work they are happiest with.
  • When formally assessing work, get students to select the three best examples of their work rather than just summarily assessing them.
