About Avant ADVANCE

Avant ADVANCE is an online training tool that increases teachers’ ability to accurately score student writing responses and internalize the ACTFL Proficiency Guidelines. Trainees learn level-specific features and criteria that define the different levels.

Avant ADVANCE will help teachers score with higher accuracy, confidence and inter-rater reliability. Designed with scaffolded, self-paced modules, trainees practice on rating student writing samples, receiving immediate feedback on rating accuracy on Novice through Advanced-level responses. Trainees may also participate in online refresher practice at any point during their subscription term.

On average, it will take a total of 12 to 15 hours to complete all the Sections. Each Module contains 2-3 training videos, which can run from 5-10 minutes each. Twenty-five written practice responses are included in a Module Test at the end of each Module.

When all Modules are complete with a high level of accuracy, teachers will take a certification test to prove abilities to score student samples at a very high agreement level across all proficiency levels. Avant ADVANCE will fundamentally change teachers’ perspectives and empower them to transform their teaching toward real-world proficiency.

Avant ADVANCE is based on the system and software that Avant built and refined over 14 years to train, certify and manage our Avant STAMP assessment raters.
