Getting children engaged in languages can be tough, especially if they lack confidence in their abilities. Low-stakes testing can be a great way to tackle this, though, by boosting confidence and showing them how much they know.
It can also be a useful way to embed vocabulary, grammar and syntax rules to complement existing lessons plans. However, deriving these benefits requires thought from teachers on how best to structure a quiz, the content that needs particularly focus and picking up on any issues that may arise.
We spoke with Dr Heather Martin, a former language teacher and academic, and KS4 MFL teacher Adam Lamb, to get their insights on what makes for a good MFL quiz and how to ensure it best suits the needs of the pupils you are teaching.
