Proficiency Cycle

Language is the foundation of identity, social-emotional learning, and connecting with community and culture. It is a lifelong journey.

Proficiency is where language fundamentals and real-world communication meet. Avant’s Proficiency Cycle is the practical application necessary for proficiency growth and development.

Avant provides the tools and ecosystem needed to support and inspire the lifelong language journey for all learners and preserve languages for generations.

Valid and Reliable Assessment

Reliable assessments aren’t just cold statistics; they’re the heartbeats of progress, lighting up the path with defined objectives and accomplishments. True growth isn’t limited to an annual exam: it’s the everyday victories, the small but tangible steps forward. Avant STAMP isn’t just any assessment tool–it’s the gold standard. 

Avant’s test questions and prompts are meticulously curated by language experts to best allow the test taker to showcase their skills to their highest potential. 

Unlike other language assessments, our patented computer-adaptive design challenges the test taker without becoming too difficult or too easy.

Avant Certified Raters undergo extensive ongoing training and oversight to maintain a high degree of inter-rater reliability.

Personalize Instruction

Imagine a roadmap tailored for every learner. Every number and every trend, whispers a story about a learner’s strengths, aspirations, and areas ripe for growth. Knowledge is power and with this enriched understanding educators can sculpt lessons and interventions that resonate, inspire, and elevate learners to maximize their proficiency growth. 

Avant’s visual reporting and “power-up” suggestions guide test takers toward the efforts needed to achieve the next level of proficiency.
