The Kentucky Standard for World Languages Proficiency document is based on the LinguaFolio Can Do statements and is comprised of:
six core competencies--three linguistic and three intercultural,
learning indicators, and
sample learning targets.
The document is based on the beliefs that:
• Everyone can learn a language, but everyone learns at a different pace, in different ways and for different purposes.
• Students need to take ownership of & responsibility for their own learning.
• Learning occurs when what is learned has meaning to the learner.
• Goal setting & self-assessment increase motivation and improve achievement.
• Standards, benchmarks, indicators and targets are meant to guide learning & should be shared with learners.
• Functional use of the language in appropriate intercultural contexts is the prime objective.
• A teacher’s role is to guide learning, provide language learning opportunities & resources and enable learners to set goals and know if they’ve met them.
• Assessment for learning and of language learning should be designed so that the learner can show s/he demonstrates the benchmark/target.
• Credit should be based on performance and awarded when the targeted proficiency or benchmark is met.
