Computerized Assessment of Proficiency (CAP)
- Levels: Middle school, high school, college

- Free of charge
The Computerized Assessment of Proficiency (CAP) is an online language assessment that documents students’ proficiency in Hebrew, Hindi, Persian, and Turkish. CAP helps students and teachers identify students’ proficiency levels and areas of both mastery and growth.
CAP is tied to the ACTFL Performance Descriptors for Language Learners, a commonly used standard for measuring students’ proficiency in world languages.
Our language assessment allows teachers to:
- See the percentage of items students answered correctly in the reading, listening, and contextualized grammar sections (Sections available varies by language.)
- See an estimated proficiency level score for students who have completed the reading and listening sections
- Have the option of grading students’ answers to the speaking and writing sections using a provided rubric
The reading and listening sections are computer adaptive. Students who answer items correctly receive more difficult test questions. The speaking, writing, and contextualized grammar sections are not adaptive. The reading, listening, and contextualized grammar sections consist of multiple choice questions. Speaking and writing sections are open ended. Those who wish to learn more about the development of the CAP language assessment may download the CAP test and CAP task specifications.
Language assessment for commonly taught languages and some critical languages is delivered through Avant as STAMP 4S and STAMP 4Se.
