Cynthia Martin workshop flyerPresented by Dr. Cynthia Martin, Undergraduate Program Director for Russian at the University of Maryland in College Park

Come join us for a workshop to learn about setting realistic learning outcomes for your language students. We will explore new ways of thinking about assessment and learn about how to use grading to encourage growth and not as a punitive system.

Part I: Setting Realistic Learning Goals for your Class

What do you expect your language students to know and be able to do at the end of any given language course? Learn about the best practices for establishing realistic learning goals. Brainstorm with colleagues and come away with concrete strategies for determining student outcomes.

Part II: Using Assessment to Measure and Encourage Growth

How will you know you have arrived? We will explore ways to capture student progress (without making a lot of extra work for us!), including how to use our LMS (Canvas) more effectively, and how to align our "grading" with our course goals.
