Investigating Assessment Perceptions and Practices in the Advanced Foreign Language Classroom
Investigating Assessment Perceptions and Practices in the Advanced Foreign Language Classroom

Report on the research results of a survey conducted by CALPER iin 2005-06 to examine issues relating to advanced language proficiency (ALP) and its assessment in classroom settings. Specifically, it focuses on the views of language teachers of varied backgrounds (in Foreign Languages, and English as a Second Language, at both high schools and universities) on assessment of ALP, and on these teachers' actual assessment practices. The report is divided into three components: 1) survey of current thinking about ALP and its assessment in classroom instruction; 2) results of survey that assessed testing perceptions and practices of ALP; 3) conclusions from the theory and research reviewed and recommendations for the direction of future research and practices relating to the assessment of ALP.
