Arabic language assessment
Internal assessment for Arabic languages complies with KHDA guidelines and the UAE MoE curriculum. The shift in UAE MoE Arabic curriculum development from the behavioral to the constructivist approach also influences the assessment practices chosen by Ignite School Arabic Faculty in the building of Arabic language courses. The UAE MoE Arabic curriculum with its constructivist approach encourages the ongoing monitoring of student performance through continuous assessment. These practices will provide students’ with intellectual development tools that ultimately increases their Arabic language proficiency. Continuous assessments give both teacher and student interim feedback on how well the student is learning and provides indicators of strengths and areas requiring more attention.
The visibility and transparency by all Departments and leadership team(s) of student performance data analysis ensures Arabic languages are achieving at the same level as other key subjects, given that Arabic will be presenting alongside languages (ELA and WL-LOTE).
