Advanced Proficiency Targeted by CALL MaterialsComputer Assisted Language Instruction Consortium Conference, Michigan State University (2016)
This presentation analyzes 68 studies at the advanced level from four CALL journals: CALICO (31), CALL (6), LL&T (15) & RECALL (16). Not only are advanced studies within CALL scant (less than 6%), but they lack specificity when it comes to how they characterize advanced. For this reason, we examine the concept of advanced as defined by the proficiency levels from ACTFL and the Can-Do Statements. We then evaluate the CALL materials in these 68 studies based on these standards-based parameters and conclude that the majority target tasks and/or skills characterized by the intermediate-level.
