LinguaFolio®  Student Self-Assessment Portfolio

LinguaFolio® is a portfolio assessment instrument designed by the National Council of State Supervisors for Languages (NCSSFL) to support individuals in setting and achieving their goals for learning languages. 

LinguaFolio®  includes these three components:

  • Biography, where information about a learner’s language background, intercultural activities, and the NCSSFL-ACTFL Can-Do self-assessment statements are published.
  • Dossier, where samples of a learner’s work document progress over time.
  • Passport, where formal qualifications, certificates or diplomas, and achievements are recorded, along with a summary of self-assessments that describe competency with different languages.

This three-fold approach, based on the European Language Portfolio, enables language learners of all ages and levels to document their language learning as they move along the continuum towards greater proficiency.

The vision of LinguaFolio® is to allow seamless progress in language learning as individuals move from one level to another, from one program to another, and even as they cease to participate in formal language instruction, but continue active language learning independently. The goal is to empower each individual learner to take responsibility for his or her language learning and be able to continue to develop proficiency independently and autonomously once the formal sequence of language instruction has ended.
