The assessment card is a five question survey. Students assess how well they understood their teacher and classmates and whether they used English in class. Finally, students recall the new language they learned and which words were difficult.

Assessment Procedure:

Distribute cards to students at the end of the lesson. For the first three questions, instruct students to color the smiley face that best represents their experience that day. For the last two questions, students write specific words or phrases from the lesson. Allow extra time for explanation and demonstration the first time you use the assessment. Add first language support to the card if desired.
