The proposed program will include 20 instructors of higher education from community colleges and other institutions of higher education. Participants will have limited backgrounds in assessment in general and in the ACTFL Proficiency Guidelines and Modified Oral Proficiency (MOPI) in particular. Participants will benefit from a total of 35 hours of professional development: 10 hours before the program, when they participate in an online introduction to the MOPI, practice rating and set goals for the workshop; 21 hours during the face-to-face workshop; one hour in September to complete a survey, one hour in October/November to complete an interview and two hours in January to complete a survey and an interview. The program will also conduct research on short- and long-term impacts of this professional development for participants, their students and their professional growth.
