Rather than creating assessments near the conclusion of a unit of study (or relying on the tests provided by textbook publishers, which may not completely or appropriately assess our standards), backward design calls for us to operationalize our goals or standards in terms of assessment evidence as we begin to plan a unit or course.” (Wiggins & McTighe (1998)

Said another way, if students spend their class time in learning how to “do” foreign language, assessment must measure the same thing. (Foreign Language Educators of New Jersey)
