L'evaluation du francais a l'elementaire (Evaluation of French at the Elementary Level).
Nogue, Alain; Lavoie, Jacinthe
This two-part guide to the evaluation of student progress in French language discusses both theoretical and practical implications. The first part consists of seven sections: (1) student evaluation; (2) the terminology of evaluation; (3) the objectives of evaluation and measurement inference; (4) the characteristics of a good learning objective, (5) taxonomic considerations in determining language competence level; (6) appropriate times for evaluation; and (7) measurement tools. The second part contains three sections. The first of these draws parallels between instructional practices and formative evaluation. The second discusses the "performance threshold," and the third provides practical information about gathering information for formative evaluation. This section also includes a series of grids for recording student data, each with a somewhat different assessment focus and accompanied by suggestions for use or adaptation. A one-page bibliography is included. Appended materials consist of information charts to supplement the discussions in the text. (MSE)
