The Modified Oral Proficiency Workshop (MOPI) is a two-day workshop introducing the oral proficiency levels of Novice and Intermediate. You will learn about the characteristics of Novice and Intermediate speakers and learn techniques to conduct interviews and determine levels. Each participate will have the opportunity to practice an interview.  As a result of these professional development experiences, educators are better able to:

  • apply key principles of teaching and testing for proficiency to curriculum, instruction, and assessment
  • establish program goals in terms of performance outcomes
  • determine student placement, progress, and performance
  • articulate within and across language programs

Workshops will be offered in English with examples provided in the languages you teach. Should demand warrant, a Spanish-focused workshop will be offered.   The $500 registration fee covers the professional learning, all materials, breakfast, snacks and lunches. A district who wishes to send a team of five or more will receive a discount on registrations fees.   Please contact professionallearning@ictfl.org for more information. Online registration for this event is not possible. Mail Registration (download form, send check) is due by May 1, 2019.
