Practical Assessment Tools for College Japanese collects 21 peer-reviewed assessment modules that were developed by teachers of Japanese who participated in the Assessments for Japanese Language Instruction Summer Institute at University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa in summer 2012. Each module presents a practical assessment idea that can be adopted or adapted for the reader’s own formative or summative assessment of their Japanese language learners. For ease of use, each module is organized in approximately the same way including background information, aims, levels, assessment times, resources, procedures, caveats and options, references, and other appended information.
