Dade County Board of Public Instruction, Miami, FL.
The Oral Language Proficiency Scale is used to determine initial placement of Spanish-speaking students in English as a second language (ESOL) programs, at one of five ESOL proficiency levels. Proficiency is assessed in four areas: oral comprehension, grammar, pronunciation, and vocabulary. The scale is based on student responses to a 20-question individual interview; the first eight are intended to put the student at ease, while the remainder measure language proficiency. (This document contains the Oral Language Proficiency Scale; the ESOL Placement Interviews, Elementary and Secondary Level; and directions for administering and scoring.) (CP)
