Summary

This is a set of generic proficiency goals in reading, writing, speaking, listening, and culture developed for all languages and for French, German, and Spanish specifically. Both the common and specific goals are being field tested to determine their utility for college and university language instructors. In addition, a questionnaire has been distributed to elicit comments about the field testing. The majority of respondents reported that the four skill area statements comprised a coherent set of language proficiency guidelines. The culture guidelines, however, represent an attempt to break new ground in quantifying cultural skills acquisition. Future plans for the language proficiency project include a summer institute on proficiency for secondary language teachers, which will focus on oral proficiency interviewing and rating and the development of proficiency based curricula. The final report on the project, "A Design for Measuring and Communicating Foreign Language Proficiency," is appended. (RW)
