PACE Project: ACTFL OPI Assessment Training, May 2016

The PACE Project in collaboration with the PACE PD Peer Team is sponsoring a four-day ACTFL OPI Assessment Training workshop for up to ten language instructors May 16-19, 2016. The workshop will take place in Jones 35 and will be conducted by an expert ACTFL OPI Tester trainer.

This four-day workshop introduces the ACTFL rating scale, the structure of the Oral Proficiency Interview (OPI), and techniques of administering and rating the OPI. Participants observe and conduct live practice interviews across all proficiency levels (Novice through Superior). Participants will critique and discuss interview elicitation, structure, and rating. Participation in this workshop can be the first step towards certification as an ACTFL OPI Tester for those who choose to do so. We hope that participation in this workshop will lead to a greater focus on proficiency and to greater opportunities for student success in developing their proficiency.

The workshop is funded by the PACE Project, which covers the cost of the training plus breakfast and lunch.

If you would like to apply for this opportunity, please register your interest by March 2, 2016. Priority will be given to the PACE languages funded by the grant.

New this year! Participants seeking to become ACTFL Certified Testers will be reimbursed for the ACTFL certification application fee upon obtaining certification.

The PACE Project is funded by a grant from The Language Flagship.
