Professional Development for Arabic Teachers

Developing Core Teaching Skills

 Assessment in Classroom: Formal and Informal

Fall session: October 1 to November 26, 2018 

Do you view assessment as a way to measure your students’ abilities and progress, or is it more about their performance correctness? Do you want to know if grades and results necessarily reflect the level of students’ language outcome, if they reflect the teacher’ s instruction efficiency, or maybe they just reflect the assessment tools’ effectiveness? How do you understand, measure, and react to your students’ performance and progress? Is your assessment standards based? How can you weigh your Arabic classroom output verses your input?
