In part one of this two-part series, we explored how individualized score reports can motivate learners. In part two, we learn how educators and parents can support language learners’ journeys based on the feedback from MET Go!.
MET Go! is often administered to large classes in schools and in language institutes. Students who have gone through the same curriculum will inevitably receive varied results, and MET Go!’s results support their continuing progress. The phrase “Keep Learning!” is built into the report card as a reminder to every test taker that language learning does not end with the test. Opportunities to practice English extend beyond the classroom, as in the example below:
To continue with this learning journey, students need support. Parents can provide this support even if they do not speak English well. The MET Go! score report suggests language-learning tasks that reinforce what their children learned in class. Parents can encourage their children to attempt these tasks at home. These activities connect English with practical life skills—such as conducting web searches or using reference materials to look up interesting facts—and stress how English is more than a school subject.
The MET Go! score reports give individual learners clear direction about what they can do next, whether at home or in class. Teachers can use the feedback from the reports to individualize their instruction based on the needs of their students, to keep an eye on particular students when teaching lessons that are relevant to them, or to allow students to work on different activities in class based on their score reports.
Following recommendations from MET Go! score reports may lead to fresh classroom dynamics and help teachers give learners individualized instruction. Teachers can rely on MET Go! score reports to improve and personalize the classroom experience for all of their students.
