Understanding Language Testing Frameworks: Efforts to Improve Applications for Assessment in the United States
This paper examines the results of a survey of United States world language instructors on their awareness and use of the ACTFL Proficiency Guidelines, a nationally recognized assessment framework. It also explores the outcomes of projects aimed at increasing awareness of U.S. language assessment frameworks and identifies challenges that arise when framework developers’ priorities contrast with those of language learners and educators.
