* A CLB3 Writing Assessment on writing a cover letter
* A Sample of a Completed Writing Assessment (Answer Key!)
Ideal for the multi-level LINC or ESL classroom, this assessment is one of a series of assessments on employment that allows the multi-level classroom to work on the same assessment topic while each learner receives an assessment that meets the Canadian Language Benchmark criteria for their CLB reading level.
More assessments on the theme of employment are also available for purchase from this TPT store.
This assessment comes ready to print and distribute to your learners for a day of assessment.
This assessment will assess the vocabulary knowledge and writing abilities of learners based on employment vocabulary that appears in cover letters. Please ensure that you have done a lesson on writing a cover letter and learners have had prior practice writing cover letters in class. (Examples of vocabulary words and phrases to have covered prior to assessment: my information, date, information of the receiver, opening: Dear Mr. / Ms., introduction, contact, email, body paragraphs, conclusion, phone number, message, interview, expression - get in touch, phrasal verb - set-up, closing: Best Regards,/Sincerely,/Regards,Best, cover letter) before assessing on this topic.
As with any assessment, please double check that the writing assessment given to a learner specifically matches the writing assessment level that learner is working towards. For example, if a learner is at a CLB2 level, this learner will receive the CLB 3 writing assessment, as this is the level the learner is working towards earning.
CLB3 Expectations for this Writing Task: (1) Learners are able to express their work experience and how they are qualified for the position in a few partially developed sentences with numerous missing words. (2) Information is sometimes relevant (40-45% of the information is relevant to the position and to what would be expected on a cover letter).
*Note: While the theme of employment is typically reserved for higher CLB levels (5 and 6), it is essential that your class is being taught the same theme and working on the same assessment at the same time for organization and consistency among their learners and especially for group discussion purposes among learners to enhance learning. With differentiated assessments, assessment can be made possible for the multi-level class. This assessment is also available for purchase for CLB4, CLB5 and CLB6 in this TPT store.
Enjoy your day of assessing on this writing topic.
