The goal of AAPPL Measure is to provide as much useful information to the test taker, instructor, and other stakeholders as possible. AAPPL Measure is comprised of four components:

  • Interpretive Listening
  • Interpretive Reading
  • Interpersonal Listening and Speaking (speaking component)
  • Presentational Writing


There is a separate score for each component of AAPPL Measure, for a total of four scores. A full sample AAPPL Score Report is available here. AAPPL Measure is rated according to the ACTFL Performance Scale.
