Features
 Here is a summary of their K-12 assessment services and offerings:
  1. STAMP 4S: STAMP (STAndards-based Measurement of Proficiency) 4S is designed for students in grades 2 through adults and assesses proficiency in Reading, Writing, Listening, and Speaking. It's used to improve language programs, qualify students for the Seal of Biliteracy, and for college placement. It covers numerous world languages.
  2. STAMP 4Se: This version is tailored for younger students in grades 2-6, offering a more age-appropriate assessment experience. Like STAMP 4S, it assesses the four key language skills and provides actionable data to inform instruction.
  3. Waypoint: Waypoint assessments are designed for formative assessment and curriculum improvement, providing immediate feedback to guide the next steps in instruction. This is particularly useful for ongoing program evaluation and adjustment.
  4. Placement Tests: Avant offers placement tests designed to help educators place students into the appropriate level of language courses, ensuring that instruction meets their current proficiency level.
  5. Seal of Biliteracy and Proficiency Recognition: Avant's assessments are used by many states and districts to qualify students for the Seal of Biliteracy, an award given by a school, district, or state in recognition of students who have studied and attained proficiency in two or more languages by high school graduation.
  6. Custom Assessments: Beyond their standard offerings, Avant provides services to develop custom language assessments tailored to specific educational or institutional needs.
  7. Professional Development and Support: Avant supports educators with professional development resources aimed at enhancing the implementation and effectiveness of their language programs. This includes training on interpreting assessment data and applying it to curriculum development.
