Scenario A – Sample Response
Imagine you were in Louis’ position. What type of assessment might you use? How would you develop this assessment and why would you do it this way?
- In this situation, I would create a summative assessment in which students select a product or service to market in a French-speaking country. I would create this assessment using the principles of backward design, making sure that the assessment allows students to show that they have met the course objective of presenting a business plan in this context. This approach to assessment helps me determine what my students can actually do with the language relative to their goals and then allows me to provide instruction that will help them perform their best on the assessment.
