Diagnosis, progress recording and evaluation

For practitioners and teachers concerned to keep a responsible eye on childhood learning as it proceeds, it is important to observe and document the learning processes of early foreign language learning and to reflect continuously on all findings. This enables them to identify every child’s individual preferences and interests, and to contribute targeted support.

Recommendations
  • In early foreign language learning, learners’ progress should be considered primarily in relation to the processes of learning. Excessive focus on learning outcomes should be avoided.
  • Every evaluation process should be carefully planned over the long term and followed throughout.
  • The portfolio represents a possible tool for progress recording. First introduction at nursery school level and continuation throughout primary and into secondary education are recommended, as this will ensure visible continuity in the learner biography.
