This session will focus on the implementation of effective teaching, learning and assessment strategies to incorporate skills-focused assessment in Languages. Marnie Foster, Head of Languages at Newington College will present her school's journey over the last few years of re-shaping assessment from knowledge and test-based to more skills-focused. Concepts such as goal setting, growth mindset, peer evaluation, teacher feedback, student work portfolios, and accumulation of work samples will be illustrated with examples.
