“Assessment- What, How and Why?”
May 15th, 2011:
The ACTFL Writing Proficiency Guidelines Familiarization Workshop
*The workshop will be conducted in Japanese
The establishment of the National Standards in the 1990s and the subsequent implementation of Japanese AP, along with the introduction of various technologies into classrooms, have resulted in considerable innovation in theories and methodologies in Japanese language education. Federal and local governments and more and more academic institutions are now requesting educators to clearly indicate how student proficiency has improved and in what respects. Keeping these developments in mind, this workshop offers a forum for exploring the meaning and practice of the assessment of students' skills from various different perspectives.
