Recording Progress. Pathfinder 1.
A method for keeping records of British student language learning progress is described and illustrated. Introductory sections highlight the following: (1) the influence of recent trends in syllabus design on recording; (2) the influence of recent trends in assessment on recording; (3) the role of the consumer in the recording of programs in modern languages; and (4) implications of the current climate for recording pupils' progress. Subsequent sections address four specific issues: integration of planning and recordkeeping; the recording of communicative competence; reporting pupils' progress to others; and areas with potential for teacher innovation. These discussions are illustrated with forms and charts used in the recordkeeping method in question. They include a form for assessment by both the teacher and the student himself, skill level descriptions, pages from a teacher's record book, a progress report, and several alternative styles for creating student profiles and records.
