Fall 2017 Foreign Language Proficiency Assessment Return to listing


Foreign Language Proficiency Assessment

The Graduate School administers Foreign Language Proficiency Assessments for enrolled, degree seeking graduate students who have a foreign language proficiency requirement as part of their degree program. The assessments are offered as an alternative to coursework (601/602 language courses) for those students who have proficiency in a language but may not have a documented means of showing it.The assessments are reading proficiency exams equivalent to a final exam in a 602 course. Principally, the exams include the translation of a prescribed general interest text and a section focused on reading comprehension skills.

General Guidelines for the FLPA

All students must present a valid photo ID (UNC One Card or Driver's License) to take the assessment. Students without a valid ID will not be allowed to sit for the assessment.

The maximum time allowed for completion of the assessment is three hours. Students who show up late may take the assessment, but will not be allowed any extra time. Students who finish early may leave upon completion of the exam.

Students are expected to sign (on their assessment) that they are aware that the UNC Honor Code applies to this exam.

Students are allowed to bring and use a foreign language dictionary during the exam.

Samples of previous examinations are generally not circulated.
