EUGENE, OR, June 03, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Avant Assessment is pleased to announce the release of STAMP for Hebrew, the first web-based, computer-adaptive Hebrew proficiency assessment designed for students from grade 3 through adult. Developed in consultation with Hebrew at the Center (http://hebrewatthecenter.org), STAMP for Hebrew engages students with real-world scenarios and measures their Hebrew proficiency level in all four skills (reading, writing, listening and speaking). Separate, age-appropriate tests are available for grade bands 3-5 and 6-adult, with test results statistically validated and reported at proficiency levels related to The American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (www.actfl.org) levels novice through advanced.

STAMP provides individual reports and aggregated data that are exportable to Excel for flexible analysis. When repeated periodically, STAMP assessments help educators measure progress and evaluate programs, empowering informed decisions around staff development and instructional planning.

"We are excited to be able to meet the language proficiency assessment needs of Hebrew educators and students," said David Bong, CEO of Avant. "We have seen the movement to expand and improve the teaching and learning of Hebrew grow dramatically over the past decade. In developing STAMP for Hebrew, we benefited from support and guidance from Hebrew at the Center, a recognized leader in Hebrew language pedagogy. We share with Hebrew at the Center the belief that effective language programs focus on developing student proficiency and are assessment-based."
