I teach 5th grade Spanish and just started applying Go Formative to the Spanish classroom this past year (I had been using it primarily for Math classes with the Show Your Work feature).
For Spanish though I’ve been using it as a study guide for basic vocabulary practice. Students are given access the week before their quiz. As soon as they submit it, they get to see the correct answers. (I do not take a formal grade for this kind of activity). This lets them know what words/sentences they need to practice more. It also lets me see any patterns I need to address during the class review prior to the quiz. I’ve also set up review stations a couple times and use formative results to group students into stations they need the most review/practice with.
(If there are major areas of struggle across the class I may push the quiz back and have the students re-take the formative after more intentional review)
There are several features that lend themselves well to supporting language learning, but I haven’t gotten to implement them in the classroom yet - I’m looking to do so next year!
@WorldLanguages_Eds any good formative ideas you can share?
