Assessment in Action: A CEFR-based Toolkit for FSL Teachers
Based on the Common European Framework of Reference for languages, Assessment in Action is a set of adaptable tasks that the teachers can use in the classroom to support assessment as, of and for learning at their students’ level in the language being taught. The tasks are designed for FSL classrooms but can be adapted for other languages.
Assessment in Action is built around five activity types: Spoken interaction; Spoken production; Listening; Reading; and Writingv. It covers the first two levels of the CEFTR, i.e. (A) Basic user and (B) Independent user. These levels are split into sub-levels – from A1.1 to B2.
Each activity type is based on a “Can-do” statement, which describes an activity that the student can do in the target language. Assessment in Action is published in two volumes: Level A and Level B.
