Completed
Description: 

In this project, commissioned by NWEDK, EDK Ost and BKZ, suitable lingualevel test packages were compiled to test the levels of the foreign languages French and English in public schools in the German-speaking cantons, years 6 through 9. These assessments allow planners to accurately gauge the current abilities students have in the foreign languages and to provide useful information for more efficient planning in the future. In addition to the test packages, further information and practice material were put together to enable teachers to assess their students’ abilities on their own. The individual teachers can then analyse the results and interpret them as they see fit (see http://www.lingualevel.ch/).
