Activity 14.4

Activity 14.4

Assessing progress

The students will assess their own and others’ progress in achieving the intended outcomes.

From the options below, decide which task best suits your students.

Discuss the learning outcomes for Unit 14 with the students and decide on the assessment criteria (Worksheet 10.1) that are appropriate to the task and the process they will use.

 If you record the performances, the students will have the opportunity to self-assess as well as assessing each other. You could assess each student on the agreed criteria and give them written feedback on their achievement afterwards.


The students tell a story. Guide the storytelling by having them use a set of prompt cards that enable them to:

  • pick a place
  • select a person
  • choose an activity
  • describe the weather
  • describe feelings.

They put the cards together to form the basis of their story. Give them time to develop their stories and practise them so that they have a good level of fluency and confidence.

Remind them that they need to be a responsive audience by, for example, applauding by waving their hands in the air.

Ask them how they felt about their second experience of storytelling and what they learned as a result.

For example:

  • could they tell a story with more confidence? 
  • was it useful to have the cards as prompts? 

Ask them what tasks help them to learn best. From their responses, you will be able to adapt future tasks to suit their particular learning needs.

Role playing

Play Scene L. The students use their copies of the Scene L transcript as a prompt. Indicate that it is acceptable to vary the role-play as some students may prefer that option.

The students present their role-plays, either to another group or to the whole class.

Assess the performances. Ask the students to write down and file the feedback they receive so that they know what aspects of their NZSL learning they need to improve.

Students need a balance of controlled and free tasks to help them learn the language in order to communicate well with other NZSL users.
