E-portfolio Assessment for Language Learners
- Levels: Middle school, high school, university
- Languages: Any
- Cost: $2.00 per student per academic year
We’ve all heard the question before: Oh, you’re studying Portuguese (or Swahili or Chinese), but can you actually use it? LinguaFolio Online, our e-portfolio for language learning, can help you and your learners answer that question with confidence.
LinguaFolio Online helps students see that they CAN actually use the language they are studying. Even better, it enables students to set their own goals, track their progress, clearly see opportunities for growth, and upload work samples to showcase their abilities. LinguaFolio Online also allows students to document their intercultural experiences and reflections, enhancing language learning and cultural understanding.
Organized around the NCSSFL-ACTFL Can-Do Statements, the LinguaFolio Online e-portfolio provides a standardized, concrete framework for discussing language proficiency. This means that students can show teachers and their parents what they can do in the target language. And educators can share their students’ progress with principals and superintendents.
- Flexible, adaptable e-portfolio tool
LinguaFolio Online provides a place for learners of any language and skill level to set goals, showcase their proficiency, and track their target language skills.
- Centered on learner proficiency
Organized around the NCSSFL-ACTFL Can-Do Statements, the e-portfolio provides an effective framework for documenting language progress across communicative modes.
- Support for instructors and districts
LinguaFolio Online has the power to guide language programs in addressing students’ strengths and needs while facilitating articulation among programs.
- Facilitate and capture learning outside of the classroom
Learners can easily capture evidence when and where they use the target language: in local stores, in restaurants, or even online. Upload evidence using the free companion iOS and Android mobile application, LFO to Go.
