The Full OPI Workshop is an intensive four-day introduction to the techniques of administering and rating the Oral Proficiency Interview. The rating scale and techniques for eliciting a ratable sample are highlighted in daily plenary sessions and then reinforced in language-specific break-out sessions. Participants have the opportunity to observe live demonstration interviews conducted by their trainer. Under the trainer’s supervision, they then conduct their own practice interviews with volunteer candidates. The group critiques and discusses both these practice interviews and their ratings. Following the workshop, participants may apply to become ACTFL OPI Raters and Testers.

The benefits of participation in OPI Workshops are many. 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 practices
  • 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 French, and Spanish.

A maximum of 10 participants is allowed per language group.

A minimum number of participants is required to offer the workshop.

The four day workshop includes training, materials, breakfast, lunch and snacks.

Nearby hotel arrangements can be coordinated through ICTFL.
