I got these questions from a group member and thought I would share them:
Q. I’ve studied both jGR and the grading rubric in the book. I absolutely love the term “observable non-verbal behaviors”. It really holds the key to grading in terms of the standard, doesn’t it?
A. Yes. For too long language educators have thought they could evaluate what we must not forget is an unconscious – and therefore unmeasurable/unquantifiable – process. Teachers who evaluate kids in language classes in terms of how many questions they got right or wrong on a test are completely out of the loop on grading language students. They are clueless.
