With the implementation of the College and Career Ready Standards (CCRS), DoDEA has adopted the ACTFL Assessment of the Performance toward Proficiency in Languages (AAPPL). The AAPPL is a performance assessment of standards-based language learning across the three modes of communication (Interpersonal, Presentational, and Interpretive) as defined by the National Standards for Foreign Language Learning, and will be administered online in the spring semester.
Students in Grades 6-12 who are enrolled in World Languages courses at Level 2 and Level 4 will be administered the AAPPL to measure performance and proficiency in World Languages.
A single AAPPL Score, according to the ACTFL Performance Scale, is issued for each component of the test (Interpersonal Listening/Speaking, Presentational Writing, Interpretive Reading, and Interpretive Listening). Students receive an AAPPL Score Report consisting of an AAPPL Score for each component, an explanation of each score, and recommendations for improvement. These recommendations are based on the ACTFL Proficiency Guidelines 2012.
Please contact your child’s teacher or school administrator with any questions regarding World Languages assessments.
