This assessment document is intended to be used as a screening assessment for writing. It includes rubrics that are based on ACTFL Performance Descriptors but broken down into sub-levels, similar to those found in the ACTFL Proficiency Guidelines.
I administer this screener to students once per quarter so that I can gather data and demonstrate measurable gains, so that students can see their progress and so that I can compare their progress to the performance targets for the course and so that I can see their progress in relation to their classmates in order to inform instruction and interventions. To administer the assessment, I show students an image (a suggested image is linked in the product file), and they write about it with as much detail as they can. Then, I assess their writing in relation to the rubric.
Two rubrics are included: one that includes descriptors for Novice Low through Advanced Low sub levels, and one that includes descriptors for Novice Low through Advanced Low.
This file is an editable Word document, and a link is included to access a Google Docs version of the same editable file.
This assessment will take 10 minutes or fewer to administer.
