ASSESSMENT

https://www.classdojo.com/

ClassDojo is a wonderful observation tool being used in Mlle.Clayton’s French classroom. This tool collects data on daily classroom learning. In our classroom French is celebrated and learned through TRYING. Students can collect points +1 for participation, asking good questions, using known French etc. and lose points -1 for interruptions, refusal to participate and using English when the French equivalent is known. The students may ask to see their results at any time privately to tailor their learning. Each student is assigned a monster avatar and during learning  “mes monstres” are watching!
