Do you teach languages at KS1 and/or KS2? Have you developed a good way to assess your pupils? Do you teach languages in KS3 and beyond? Do you know how your pupils were assessed in languages at primary level? By the way, have you met a ‘Magician’ recently?
If you teach languages at Primary Level, there is a fair chance that you are still developing strategies to assess your pupils. Could you do with a few more ideas or even a whole system which actually works? If you teach at secondary level, you may be a little in the dark with regard to assessment at primary level. Would you like a little light shed on this issue? Whatever your situation, our next speaker may well be able to help:
