This joint ACTFL/CAL session introduces two exciting online training resources: ACTFL’s online professional development component on the ACTFL Proficiency Scale, National Standards and Performance Guidelines for K–12 Learners; and the CAL Web-based Oral Proficiency Assessment training course for Chinese teachers (WOPA-C). ACTFL’s CEU-bearing professional development component supports standards-based instruction and assessment in the classroom and provides an intellectual framework for the AAPPL (ACTFL Assessment for Performance and Proficiency of Languages), a media-rich, highly realistic assessment of the four skills across three modes of communication. The WOPA-C includes assessment resources, rubrics for Chinese, and training in how to administer and rate two oral proficiency assessments, ELLOPA (Early Language Listening and Oral Proficiency Assessment) and SOPA (Student Oral Proficiency Assessment).
