World Languages Assessment

I've never been a great fan of testing and assessment, so I was quite surprised to find some quite interesting and useful resources on the World Languages Assessment website.

For me, by for the most interesting part was the video on demand section which has links to seven 15 minute video clips about different areas of assessment, including technology in assessment and assessing cultural competence.

The video streams quite well and the quality of the low bandwidth version is more than adequate. Once you get past the initial, slightly stuffy, introductions, there are some clips of live classrooms and interviews with teachers which I found really interesting.

The rest of the site is worth checking out too as it has professional development guides, teacher resources and a link to a Ning based discussion forum.

Hope you enjoy this.
