MLTAV Languages Conference
Attend the MLTAV Languages Conference for a full day of professional learning including an inspirational panel, innovative workshops and opportunities to network and collaborate with colleagues.
To support teachers implementing the Victorian F–10 Languages curriculum, the Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority (VCAA) is hosting a short professional learning webinar on how to use the VCAA’s suite of free online language assessments.
Developed with and hosted by the Australian Council for Education Research (ACER), the online VCAA Languages Assessments consist of a series of multiple choice listening and reading tests in Chinese, French, German, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Modern Greek and Spanish. The assessments provide a snapshot of each student's receptive reading and listening skills, which can be used to target the student's learning needs.
The VCAA’s upcoming professional learning webinar is a refresher on how online language assessments can be used to assess and target individual students' learning needs. It will focus on the data and reports available to support teachers using the online language assessments. It will also provide teachers with an understanding of how the data and reports can be used to inform their teaching.
