Task Lab: The influence of foreign-language teaching methodologies on language learning in adult migrants in low-threshold language courses
In the spring of 2017, the CDIP/EDK assessed for the first time the basic skills in the first foreign language of schoolchildren at the end of primary school. On the basis of this assessment, the “Passepartout cantons” (the six cantons on the French-German language border) are investigating how well the targets were achieved in French. The Research Centre on Multilingualism has the responsibility of developing test tasks for this purpose, and the project Task Lab was conducted in the scope of this activity. Task Lab carries out important preparatory and foundational work in the area of (computer-based) testing of reading comprehension for the purpose of this project and future studies.
