Three faculty members at Crescent School are Accredited DELF Scorers.
After attending a week-long training session last summer, Middle School teacher Stephen Kupfer is now an Accredited DELF Scorer. Kupfer is qualified to mark the internationally recognized Diplôme d’études en langue française language proficiency tests, which measure fluency according to an international standard for language ability.
DELF exams were introduced to Grades 8 to 12 Crescent students in 2016/2017. To date, over 100 students have written DELF exams.
The accreditation training centered on assessment, creating rubrics and evaluating the different strands of language (reading, writing, listening and speaking). “Crescent provides students with multiple opportunities to write DELF exams to recognize their growth in French proficiency,” says Kupfer. “Not only has this training shaped how I assess, it has also influenced how I teach, support my students, and plan my lessons.”
Isabelle Moore, Crescent’s Head of Modern Language, and Upper School French teacher Marianne Sasso are also Accredited DELF Scorers.
