ACTFL Oral Proficiency Interview by Computer (OPIc)
The ACTFL OPIc is a test of oral proficiency that can be delivered electronically and on demand. This semi-direct test is individualized to the test taker and designed to elicit a 20-30 minute sample of ratable speech delivered via the internet. The candidate's digitally recorded speech is double rated by ACTFL Certified Raters. An Official ACTFL OPIc Certificate, indicating one of seven possible proficiency levels, is issued.
ACTFL Advanced Level Check
The Advanced Level Check is a truncated version of an OPI that determines whether or not the candidate meets the Advanced Low level of proficiency. The interview is conducted telephonically by an ACTFL Certified Tester, double rated, and an ACTFL Advanced Level Check Certificate is issued to those candidates who meet the Advanced Low level of speaking proficiency.
