Student Oral Proficiency Assessment Workshop

Student Oral Proficiency Assessment Workshop
Presented by Lynn Thompson, Center for Applied Linguistics, and staff from the Assessment and Evaluation Language Resource Center (AELRC).

At this one-day workshop sponsored by the AELRC, K-8 world languages instructors and researchers interested in K-8 language learners will learn how to use two assessments developed by CAL: the Student Oral Proficiency Assessment (SOPA) and the Early Language Listening and Oral Proficiency Assessment (ELLOPA).

Participants will receive a set of standard tasks, a copy of the CAL K-8 Oral Proficiency Assessment Manual, and a certificate of completion. The facilitator will introduce the two assessments, describe how to use oral proficiency assessment to support and enhance instruction, and share first-hand experiences working with the assessments. Lunch and a light breakfast will be provided.

The AELRC is funded by the U.S. Department of Education.
