13A Changing the Paradigm: Holistic Assessment in the Latin Classroom

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

As teachers, most of us are familiar (if not necessarily completely comfortable) with assessment OF our students’ learning. Some may have explored assessment FOR learning and assessment AS learning. But is it possible to change the culture of a Latin program, to build enrollment, and to retain students by changing our approach to assessment? This workshop will explore the use of holistic minor and major assessments, including both “pure” and modified versions ACTFL’s Integrated Performance Assessment, in various Latin programs. After considering the basic format and rationale of holistic assessments, we will look in detail at specific sample assessments (and student responses) from students at various proficiency levels. We conclude with real-life examples -- and student and parent testimonials -- about the effects of holistic assessment on the culture, size, and retention rates of Latin programs which are using holistic assessment approaches.
