In 2018, the Bilingual Multicultural Education Program (BMEP) Assessment taskforce was selected to research, review and identify assessments for Spanish language proficiency in Reading, Writing, Listening, and Speaking that are rigorous and meet the states’ Regulations and Standards.

The BMEP Assessment taskforce members worked in coordination with the state, via direct advisement to the Language and Culture Bureau. After careful and thorough review of the various assessments, the taskforce recommended Avant STAMP as the best available assessment for the students of New Mexico.

Avant STAMP assessment scores are based on the ACTFL Proficiency Guidelines, which the state has adopted.

Avant STAMP scores are delivered electronically within seven business days, allowing for the data to be utilized for driving instruction and making program decisions. Individual student Speaking and Writing responses are available for viewing to teachers and administrators, along with class summary charts.

The Avant STAMP assessments are administered in a group setting and take an average of two hours to complete. STAMP assessments feature a unique adaptive design, so students never see the same test.

Avant also offers language proficiency assessments in a variety of languages to accommodate testing for the State of New Mexico Diploma of Excellence Bilingual and Biliteracy Seal.

Avant is honored to support the students of New Mexico with achieving their language proficiency goals.
