MLA PROFICIENCY TESTS--POSSIBILITIES FOR FUTURE USES.
KURLAND, NORMAN D.
THE MODERN LANGUAGE ASSOCIATION PROFICIENCY TESTS PROVIDE THE NEW YORK STATE DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION WITH AN ALTERNATIVE WAY OF JUDGING THE COMPETENCY OF POTENTIAL FOREIGN LANGUAGE TEACHERS WHO MAY LACK COLLEGE CREDIT OR WHO HAVE FOREIGN DEGREES. ON THE NATIONAL LEVEL, THESE TESTS CAN HELP RAISE THE LEVEL OF LANGUAGE INSTRUCTION BY SETTING MINIMUM COMPETENCY REQUIREMENTS FOR THOSE IN TEACHER TRAINING PROGRAMS, PROVIDING STATES WITH A BASIS FOR ESTABLISHING MINIMUM COMPETENCY REQUIREMENTS FOR CERTIFICATION, SERVING AS A BASIS FOR AWARDING ADVANCED PLACEMENT AND CREDIT IN COLLEGE, AND ENCOURAGING GREATER INDEPENDENT STUDY AND USE OF AUTOINSTRUCTIONAL PROCEDURES.
