Welcome LCTL Teachers, Students, and Language Program Coordinators!


This CLEAR website brings together guidelines and resources for meeting the most important, specialized assessment requirements of LCTL programs. These assessment needs include placement testing, diagnostic assessment, formative assessment (feedback), and summative proficiency assessment for programs large and small. Students who access this site to take the speaking proficiency assessment should select “Speaking Proficiency Assessment” and then choose their language.

Also on this site, teachers and language coordinators will find templates and practical testing methods for a variety of LCTLs, most of which can easily be adapted for use with other languages. The site features online speaking proficiency assessments (SPAs) with companion rater-training modules. You will also find links to additional assessment LCTL resources around the country.
