Summary

The Australian Second Language Proficiency Ratings (ASLPR) is a scale that describes how second language proficiency develops on a scale from zero to native-like proficiency, providing performance descriptions in terms of practical tasks. Initially developed for English second language teaching, it has been adapted for English dialects in Australia, a number of other languages (French, Italian, Japanese, Chinese, Indonesian, Korean), and English for academic and special purposes. Two scales of language teacher proficiency have also been created. A variety of self-assessment versions for both testing learner and teacher proficiency are under development, and one project is adapting the scale to sign language. Re-evaluation and revision of the basic scale are ongoing. The ASLPR has become the standard means for stating language proficiency in Australia, with rater training programs designed to ensure test reliability. Research is under way to document the language learning process and the time needed for attainment of different proficiency levels. A number of testing projects in other countries have used the scale as a model, and international usage is increasing. (MSE)
