Virtual Sessions

The AAPPL, Useful Proficiency Data, and a Robust Reporting System

As part of the NECTFL 2021 virtual conference, we contributed this session on the usefulness of the AAPPL and the many data sorting/reporting tools that come along with it. Learn about this ACTFL-developed assessment, the proficiency-based data it renders, and reporting features that include comparison reports (to other students of yours or to national average), longitudinal data reports, and many more!

Presenter: Andrew Bowen, LTI
