The students' performance will be assessed orally and in writing:
- daily with homework completion and correction, as well as class participation.
- periodically with quizzes (1 to 2 per chapter) and tests (1 per chapter) and projects (1 per quarter)
The assessments assess the four strands:
listening comprehension, speaking, reading comprehension, writing.
Within these strands are assessed vocabulary, structure and culture to ensure the learning of the standards. Due to the numerous learning targets involved in each assessment, they are not listed individually in Phoenix.
The world language Standards Of Learning are organised as follows:
COMMUNICATION: communicate in languages other than English.
CULTURES : gain knowledge and understanding of other cultures.
CONNECTIONS : connect with other disciplines and acquire information.
COMPARISONS : Develop insight into the nature of language and culture.
COMMUNITIES: paticipate in multilingual communities at home and around the world.
As determined by LCPS, when a student scores below an 80% on a major summative, re-teaching should
occur, and a re-assessment should be provided. In the event of a re-assessment, the student will be
given the higher grade between the original assessment and the re-assessment up to an 80%; this
encourages a growth mindset.
A retake will be administered at the latest on the 6th schoolday from when the assessment is handed back.
