NCSSFL-ACTFL Can-Do Statements
The revised NCSSFL-ACTFL Can-Do Statements are currently in their final editing and will be available soon. The Can-Do 2.0 Writing Team has been working since September 2016 on revisions to the original document, with the goal of providing a framework to more clearly identify the broad differences across the major ranges of Novice, Intermediate, Advanced, Superior, and Distinguished, as well as from sub-level to sub-level (Low - Mid - High).

The revisions to the NCSSFL-ACTFL Can-Do Statements (including the new Can-Do Statements for Intercultural Communication) have been finalized and the document is currently being prepared to post online.  To be useful to educators and learners, the Can-Do Statements are being formatted in a version that may be downloaded and printed.  Once that is ready, the new Can-Do Statements will be available at:  ACTFL and NCSSFL will send out multiple announcements when the new documents are available.

Thank you for the update! All of us in my district are very excited to see the revised Can-Do Statements and the new Intercultural Communication Can-Do Statements. We so appreciate the time and care that the committee members are taking in crafting documents that will support teaching and learning in our classrooms. We are sending you thunderous applause--albeit virtual applause--for your efforts on our students' behalf!
