Standards-Based Measurement of Proficiency (STAMP): An Assessment to Measure Proficiency of Interpretive and Presentational Communication
Falsgraf, Carl; Semmer, Martie
Learning Languages, v10 n1 p20-21 Fall 2004
Teaching can be overwhelming and teachers can feel as if they are being pulled in many different directions unless they are able to point all of the complicated tasks connected to teaching in the same direction. The Center for Applied Second Language Studies (CASLS) has delivered online assessments called STAMP (Standards-based Measurement of Proficiency) to over 50,000 middle and high school students nationally. As a proficiency-based measure of student performance, STAMP can serve as an exit assessment or K-6 programs as well as assist in articulation between elementary and middle school programs. Additionally, CASLS together with its partner Language Learning Solutions (LLS), is currently developing an ESL assessment for elementary school students, and is investigating the possibility of developing similar assessments for elementary school foreign language students.
