Configuring Language Acquisition Classes

Via Classes > Overview tab

Under the Overview tab of the class, navigate to Edit Class Settings, where you can define the phases offered for your specific classes.

Via Edit Class Settings > Once you have chosen the phases offered, click Save Changes.

Via Classes > Members > Students tab

If the class spans multiple phases (e.g. Phases 1-6), then you must make a judgment for each student’s phase. This can be done under the Students tab by clicking on the most appropriate phase for each student.

It is essential that this is done prior to assessment and term reporting as the criterion descriptors will vary by phase. For example, if a student is shifted from Phase 1 to Phase 3, the criterion descriptors will vary.

Why are old classes showing the old criteria?

Classes created prior to August 1, 2014 will continue to show the old assessment criteria and objectives. The reason for this is because we cannot modify historical assessment data for the 2013-2014 year i.e. grades you have entered for your final term in June 2013 would permanently remain based on the old subject guide.

While we implemented the curriculum changes on July 31, please keep in mind that the subject guides were meant to be effective from September 2014 for May-session and January 2015 for November-session schools.

What about my old unit plans and tasks?

Your old unit plans were automatically shifted forward into your new classes; however, as a group you must select new Objectives and Criteria.

Your tasks can be transferred into your new class by clicking Add Resources under the Tasks & Units tab. You will need to edit the imported task to update the criteria.

Note: Unfortunately, any task-specific rubrics you created for old tasks in the prior subject guides cannot be re-used. This is because the new criteria are different, so it was not possible for us to carry them over.
