Throughout the year a teacher/instructor can perform various methods of assessments to ensure that the students are progressively learning the material needed to excel to the next level. For my ESL class I would incorporate various methods of assessments to ensure the students are meeting the course objectives and the objectives of each particular lesson plan.
First off I would in the ESL class I would hold at the end of each lesson plan class presentations. Students will use vocabulary that had been recently covered that ranges from types of verbs, nouns and punctuation. They will be critiqued on pronunciation, vocabulary used (from lesson), and length. Student must have a minimal time of 3-4 minutes and have less than 6 errors to pass. This type off assessment will show that they have mastered the vocabulary of the lesson and know how to appropriately use it in conversation. A good test, beginning with objectives is meant by the authors to say that objectives help the teachers have direction in what to teach in order to meet the objectives or end goals for the unit, and having objectives also gives something to be measured (Kubiszyn, 2010). A teacher will also know the success of a unit by what students remember and how many of those things relate to the objectives. These presentations will reflect just that. What they have retained from the lesson we had just covered. This type of assessment I think goes well with Bloom's Taxonomy due to the fact they have to understand the proper usage of the vocabulary, apply it to create a presentation, analyze their usage of words to make sure it flows appropriately, and use all this to create a full presentation.
