ALPBP Project Language Proficiency Assessment (LPA) Symposium. Literature Review, LPA Symposium Summary, & Publication and Dissemination Plan for the LPA Symposium Proceedings. Final Report.
Rivera, Charlene, Comp.
The Language Proficiency Assessment (LPA) Symposium was held to integrate the insights gained from findings emerging from the research component and the implementation of the teacher training programs of the Assessment of Language Proficiency of Bilingual Persons (ALPBP) project. This final report on the symposium consists of three component reports. The first, "Issues in the Assessment of Language Proficiency of Language Minority Students," by C. Rivera and C. Simich, is an analysis of the literature and research in the area of language proficiency assessment. The second article is a summary of symposium presentations. These two reports provide documentation regarding the state of the art of language proficiency assessment and summarize research issues which need to be further documented. The third component report is a proposed plan for public dissemination of the symposium proceedings. (Author/AMH)
