Summary

This collection of five essays and supporting material concerning foreign language proficiency makes specific and controversial statements about what proficiency means for diverse groups of practitioners: the classroom teacher, the curriculum developer, the language-learning researcher, the textbook publisher, and the businessperson. An introductory chapter is entitled "Learning for Proficiency: The Unifying Principle" (Charles J. James), and the five essays are: "The ILR Proficiency Scale as a Synthesizing Research Principle: The View from the Mountain" (Pardee Lowe, Jr.); "Proficiency in Practice: The Foreign Language Curriculum" (Laura K. Heilenman and Isabelle Kaplan); "Materials Development for the Proficiency-Oriented Classroom" (Jeannette D. Bragger); "From Achievement toward Proficiency through Multi-Sequence Evaluation" (Sally Sieloff Magnan); and "Proficiency Applications beyond the Academic Classroom" (Kathryn Buck and Gregory Forsythe). The American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages' Provisional Proficiency Guidelines and the Interagency Language Roundtable (ILR) Level Definitions are appended, and person, topic, and institution citation indexes are provided.
