World Language Proficiency Certificates and Bilingual Seal Workshop

  • 11 Apr 2015
  • 9:00 AM - 11:30 AM
  • Minnesota Department of Education, Conference Center A, Room 14

Registration is closed

World Language Proficiency certificates were written into statute in 2009. Students who demonstrate intermediate-low and intermediate-mid/high proficiency on a validated assessment are eligible to earn a world language proficiency certificate.

Legislation passed during the 2014 session amended the language for world language proficiency certificates to include possible college credit and established state bilingual and multilingual seals that require awarding of college credit.

This informational session will focus on world language proficiency certificates, ACTFL descriptors of required proficiency levels and acceptable validated assessments. We will use the ACTFL/NCSSFL Can-Do Statements, Progress Indicators for Language Learners to discuss ACTFL proficiency levels. Participants are asked to bring an example of student writing to help identify current student levels.

An update of current legislation amending bilingual seals proficiency levels will also be provided.
