If you are teaching multiple levels, you can do one SLO per level. If you are only teaching one level, you will have to divide your SLO in some fashion. You could possibly do a communication SLO and a culture SLO as our standards are divided that way. ODE site Google ODE Educator Evaluation Student Growth Measures (learn more) All the documents you need are there Student Learning Objectives Guidebook SLO Scoring Template Example of annotated World Language SLO SLO for only level 1 For your baseline data, use the LinguaFolio Novice Low and Novice Mid assessment. Also for background information and a proficiency check, use a preassessment as in this example. You must be advocates in your district to explain why level 1 SLOs have minimal data. OR You may wait for two weeks or more, give an assessment and use that as your baseline. You will still be looking for Novice Mid 1, 2, or 3 by the end of the year according to ACTFL recommendations.

Use grammar based tests Use multiple choice tests exclusively Use vocabulary only based tests These are formative assessments that are not proficiency based and do not align with our standards. Formative or summative? Formative- “forming” the students knowledge Percentage of grade? Practicing with the grammar and vocabulary Summative- “Summing up” what they know Percentage of grade?

Show me what you have learned. Impresiona a la Sra. Assessment sample We are teaching grammar, vocabulary etc. and using regular quizzes for formative testing/quizzing. After each chapter, we are giving an IPA type test. It includes listening, reading, writing and speaking. There is no fill in the blank or pick the right…. At all. It is showing what kids can do with the language with their interpretive, interpersonal, and presentational skills in the language. We use a performance based proficiency rubric for these tests. For the SLO at midterm and final for first year, and at the beginning, midterm and final for levels 2,3,4,ap, we will also give an IPA exam that we will use a proficiency based rubric for to assess if they are at the novice mid, high, intermediate low, mid, or high according to level. We are also using the LinguaFolio checklist of “I can” statements as back up and to let us know what level they are going to fall into before we give them an IPA. We will keep a Dossier of their work for this to prove they are where they self-assess. LinguaFolio Three parts • Language Biography (3 components) • Language Background • Interculturality • Self-Assessment Checklists • Language Dossier • Language Passport NCSSFL Students only need to get 70% of the “I can..” statements to be at the level 1. Language Background Learning Inventory "How Do I Learn" Documenting Language Background (optional templates) Learning Summary Language Activities Interculturality Interculturality refers to the interaction of people from different cultures, using authentic language appropriately to demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the cultures.

You need to complete the main “I can..” statement. Dossier For the Language Dossier, you will choose a collection of work samples and certificates to document your language skills, experiences, and achievements. Language Passport The Language Passport provides a comprehensive picture of what you can do with language. It summarizes information from your Language Biography, including when you reach what proficiency level based on the can-do checklists; your interculturality; and formal qualifications, certificates, or diplomas. Together, the information in your Passport gives an overview of your experiences and competencies with different languages.
