7C The 2016 National Latin Exam: What Can It Tell Us About Our Students and Our Teaching?

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The National Latin Exam is a tool which teachers can use to assess their students' understanding and progress in the study of Latin. We will review the general statistics from the 2016 exam and then take a closer look at the questions, particularly those questions which the students found to be the easiest and, most importantly, the most difficult to answer. What do these easy and hard questions have to tell us about our teaching? Furthermore, we will examine what answer the students actually gave to the most difficult questions, allowing us to follow their thoughts about and understanding of the language. This may provide some valuable insight into how students learn and how we are teaching. There will be plenty of handouts, a raffle, and ample opportunity for questions and discussion.
