Test & Practice Information

    The Fife School District uses different tests to provide proficiency testing in all languages. The three most common tests available are STAMP 4s, Avant WorldSpeak, and Alta. 
These tests measure your proficiency: what you can do with the language (not what you know about the language, such as grammar facts or vocabulary definitions). You'll be asked to speak and write about different topics to see whether your proficiency level is more at the Novice level, Intermediate level, or Advanced level. You can find examples in English and some other languages in the ACTFL Proficiency Guidelines 2012.

    You will be given information on which testing option is available for your language and how you will take the test after you complete the registration form. Some tests are all computer, some are paper and pencil, and ssome are voice via telephone or a combination of options.
