The Current State of Foreign Language Assessment in the United States
While there is no current, comprehensive picture of student outcomes at the secondary or post-secondary level, a number of tests are being used locally and regionally to measure student outcomes. In this presentation, I will first outline past efforts to measure student outcomes in foreign languages (Carroll, 1967; Shrum and Glisan, 2005). Next, I will describe some of the tests being used in elementary and secondary settings and national efforts to develop formative assessments. Finally, I will discuss the challenges of the current efforts and discuss future possibilities with participants.
