ACTFL Assessment for Performance and Proficiency of Languages (AAPPL)
Funder: U.S. Department of Education, International Research and Studies Program, via subcontract from the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL)
January 2006 – August 2008
CAL worked with ACTFL to articulate a blueprint to assess performance and proficiency in languages on a national scale across all educational levels. The project involved creating a framework appropriate for a national test, conducting a survey of K–16 language educators to determine their assessment practices and needs, developing a prototype with language specific items, and disseminating information on the project to inform the profession.
