in Reading, Writing, Listening & Speaking

The Avant STAMP (STAndards-based Measurement of Proficiency) language test was created at the University of Oregon to improve language-learning outcomes and support excellence in language programs. STAMP enables teachers to be effective in improving proficiency outcomes, and empowers administrators to make better informed decisions about curriculum and teacher training by delivering accurate data on students’ proficiency levels. Leading language programs use Avant STAMP data to refocus their curricula and introduce professional development to hone their teachers’ ability to deliver improved proficiency outcomes. Others are using it as a measure for student growth, to qualify for the Seal of Biliteracy and to award Competency-Based Credits. Avant STAMP engages students with real-world content that is leveled according to the topics commonly taught at each level of instruction including age appropriate content for students in grades 2-6 with STAMP 4Se. STAMP’s adaptive test design adjusts to a student’s level so they are challenged, but not overwhelmed. And because STAMP is an adaptive test, it liberates students to show what they can do with the language – all the way up to the top of the Advanced level.

The Avant STAMP 4Se Language Proficiency test (Grades 2-6) is offered in Arabic, Cantonese, English, French, German, Hebrew, Japanese, Korean, Mandarin (Simplified & Traditional), Portuguese (Brazilian) (Coming Soon), Russian, & Spanish.

The Avant STAMP 4S Language Proficiency test (Grades 7-Adult) is offered in Arabic, English, French, German, Hebrew, Hindi, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Mandarin (Simplified & Traditional), Polish, Portuguese (Brazilian) (Coming Soon), Russian, & Spanish.
