Dear colleagues and friends,

I was just wondering if you had some questionnaire/checklist to obtain data on foreign language teachers' perceptions on the use of Web2.0 tools. I would like to collect data on this topic. The results will be shared here, of course.

Many thanks for your assistance and cooperation in advance.

Is anyone else concerned about how NCLB formulae are affecting our assessment practices? I'm concerned about:
a. the number of WEEKS out of the year we must now devote to standardized testing--"pre-testing,", "benchmark testing", "post-testing," and of course the yearly end of year state tests.
b. the current practice of testing students who do not speak any English, let alone enough to read and understand test questions.
c. the loss of resources required to assess students authentically, through portfolios, interviews, observations, etc.

Assessment has long been a puzzle that I seek to resolve in aligning my beliefs about education and my practices. With a group of online masters level students I have had great success in using peer assessment to facilitate creating community of learners based on continuous improvement. Using similar strategies with undergraduates is not so successful as they are reluctant to rate each other. I am wondering if it is just a matter of perserverance or if they are just not yet ready to be in such a learning environment.
