I have not merged the answer key. I will do it soon. In the meantime, simply email me if you need it. The rubric for the writing task is included.
notes from my past experiences and my applied linguistics studies if this evaluation is intended for ESL/EFL learners:
* Linguistics and language acquisition studies show that active listening, such as completing a listening comprehension evaluation, benefits ESL learners much more than passive listening. It gives their listening a purpose and focuses students on trying to figure out the words and meaning.
* According to language learning studies, the use of authentic material (meant for first language) provides more benefits than adapted material.
* If possible, do not use subtitles when presenting a TV show or movie. My experience has shown me that students focus too much on reading the subtitles instead of trying to listen for understanding. Students may feel overwhelmed the first time but they will gain in confidence over time.
* If there is a possibility, try to have each student watch and answer the listening comprehension individually. Provide them with a time frame as to when they must have completed the evaluation and returned it to the teacher. This way you are certain to evaluate their listening skills and not their abilities to listen and write all at once. It also helps students with learning difficulties.
