French as a Second Language. Student Evaluation Guide: Early Childhood Services-Grade 12 = Francais langue seconde: guide d'evaluation des eleves de la maternelle a la 12e annee.
The guide is designed as a reference to student evaluation for teachers of Alberta's new French second language curriculum. It provides a suggested philosophy of student evaluation and evaluation techniques consistent with the curriculum. It is presented in its entirety in both English and French. An initial discussion of the purpose of evaluation defines evaluation, examines its rationale, presents two guiding principles, and describes in greater detail the practical application of those principles. Two subsequent sections look at specific student evaluation techniques for (1) ongoing classroom practices, including observation, error correction, comprehension/verification, and reflection/feedback, and (2) evaluation of an integrated unit or educational project. A chapter is devoted to reporting student progress, with suggestions for design of both open- and closed-ended questions and discussion of progress and achievement tests. Appended materials include a sample test, checklists for creating an integrated test, and examples of communicative test items and evaluation grids based on the guide, in French and English. (MSE)
