Wenner, Peggy J.
Idaho State Department of Education
In response to a need for curricular support, the Idaho State Department of Education gathered teams of exemplary educators from throughout the state to write courses of study related to all subject areas within Idaho's Achievement Standards. A need arose to assess areas not tested statewide in a performance-based manner. Teachers involved in writing the courses of study for foreign language were asked to return and prepare an assessment based on the Idaho Humanities Achievement Standards and the foreign language courses of study. The following assessments are recommended for use with those courses of study. The Foreign Language Course of Study covers content knowledge and skills in the areas of Historical/Cultural Contexts, Critical Thinking, and Performance as these areas relate to foreign language studies. This document provides a framework to assist teachers in foreign language assessment as they prepare their students to meet Idaho's Humanities Achievement Standards. Appended are: (1) Foreign Language Assessment Chart; and (2) Rubrics.
