Dates: October 12, 2018, December 3, 2018 and if needed (Day 3) January 25, 2019

Presenter: Jacquelyn Germain

Participants will review and revise (if necessary) current LOTE proficiency exam formats and create question banks in Spanish for 8th grade proficiency exams.
Participants will supply in advance or bring with them reading passages, realia, and authentic documents in digital format to be used as the basis of listening and reading questions.
Most of day 1 will be spent writing test items using the submitted materials, with the start of the day spent reviewing the current test format and guidelines for item writing. Day 2 will be for review of test bank items for quality, levels, and topics/standards. Additionally, any revisions to administration manuals and rubrics will be done on this day.
In addition, a day in January will be spent editing and doing a quality review on the test bank questions.
A LOTE facilitator at CVES will choose questions from the banks to create the proficiency exams for the June 2019 administration. Tests will be sent to participating districts the first week in May.
Please note that your district will receive the exam from each workshop for which you have registered.
