Language Proficiency Assessments
In order to ensure fairness to any and all students who seek accreditation of their language skills for academic credit, ISU will accept certification via LTI (Language Testing International), an organization affiliated with ACTFL (the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages). ACTFL has developed assessment tools based on decades of research in foreign language acquisition. LTI provides certification for schools, universities, and other organizations for a growing list of over 100 languages. Here is a link to the accreditation for academic credit in higher education:
https://www.languagetesting.com/lti-for-organizations/academic. Please see the link for the scores required.
For languages offered at ISU, you do not need to utilize the services of LTI. Please see the department of Languages, Literatures, and Cultures (www.LAN.illinoisstate.edu) for more information on proficiency exams for academic credit and self-placement exams for courses offered. Note that students who complete a language course at ISU with a C or better can earn up to eight hours of CAP credit.
