The Development of an Evaluation Guidance Rubric for Listening Comprehension Activities Based on the Common European Framework of References of Languages (2001) - Designed and Implemented for the German Textbook Deutsch: Na klar! (2001)
MetadataShow full item record
The Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (2001) is increasingly being consulted and used in a wide number of contexts today. However, there is a lack of systematic information available on how to use it effectively and individually. Therefore the main purpose of this research is to investigate the CEFR (2001) - a guideline used to describe learner foreign languages achievements across Europe- and the CEFR's impact on specifically listening comprehension in the second language classroom. As a result of the analysis, instructional user-friendly criteria in the form of an Evaluation Guidance Rubric was developed, which can be used as a framework for evaluating and developing effective listening activities that will improve language learning among German students, applying the communicative learning approach. The evaluation Guidance Rubric is applied to four independent listening activities of the German textbook Deutsch: Na liar! by DiDonato (2007). A proposed activity corpus at the end of this project serves as a model of an effective use of the developed guidance.
