- World Language and Bilingual students: These tests measure your proficiency: what you can do with the language (not what you know about the language, such as grammar facts or vocabulary definitions). You'll be asked to speak and write about different topics to see whether your proficiency level is more at the
Novice level, Intermediate level, or Advanced level. You can find examples in English and some other languages in the
ACTFL Proficiency Guidelines 2012.
- ASL Students: These tests measure your proficiency; what you can do in the language. Reference how to prepare for the ASLPI.
