ACTFL-Sponsored Workshops

2014 ACTFL Proficiency Assessments Summer Institute


  Hosted by Brigham Young University

ACTFL is proud to present the first ever Proficiency Assessments Summer Institute hosted by Brigham Young University. We are offering a diverse range of workshops to better meet the growing demand for newly certified testers and raters across assessments and certifications.

The benefits of participation in these workshops are many. As a result of these professional development experiences, educators are better able to:

  • apply key principles of teaching and testing for proficiency to curriculum, instruction, and assessment practices.
  • establish program goals in terms of performance outcomes.
  • determine student placement, progress, and performance.
  • articulate within and across language programs.
  • become eligible to apply for OPI or WPT certification.
  • become eligible to apply for advancement from Limited Certification (able to test up to Intermediate High) to Full Certification (to test up to Superior).
