The Kentucky Standard for World Languages Proficiency document is based on the LinguaFolio Can Do statements and is comprised of:

  • one standard,
  • six core competencies--three linguistic and three intercultural,
  • learner benchmarks,
  • learning indicators, and
  • sample learning targets.
The document is based on the beliefs that:
  • Everyone can learn a language, but everyone learns at a different pace, in different ways and for different purposes.
  • Students need to take ownership of & responsibility for their own learning.
  • Learning occurs when what is learned has meaning to the learner.
  • Goal setting & self-assessment increase motivation and improve achievement.
  • Standards, benchmarks, indicators and targets are meant to guide learning & should be shared with learners.
  • Functional use of the language in appropriate intercultural contexts is the prime objective.
  • A teacher’s role is to guide learning, provide language learning opportunities & resources and enable learners to set goals and know if they’ve met them.
  • Assessment for learning and of language learning should be designed so that the learner can show s/he demonstrates the benchmark/target.
  • Credit should be based on performance and awarded when the targeted proficiency or benchmark is met.
