Test takers may be evaluated on the Receptive skill (the ability to comprehend ASL) as well as the Expressive skill (the ability to create ASL) including the use of ASL grammar. This computer-adaptive Sign Language test is conducted entirely online.

The Receptive skill is computer- adaptive and results are available immediately upon completion. The Expressive skill is scored by members of the ASL linguistics community who have undergone Avant Rater Certification training. 

Spanish Heritage Language (SHL)

Avant’s Spanish Heritage Language assessment is a placement test for heritage language programs. It measures Vocabulary, Grammar, Verb use, Spelling, and Writing and Speaking proficiency in Spanish that is appropriate for the wide range of Spanish spoken in the US. 

The Avant SHL test identifies less proficient students quickly and allows them to exit the test early, while more proficient students take the entire test to gather the data necessary to accurately place them.
