SOPI (Simulated Oral Proficiency Interview) is a tape-mediated
speaking test that is scored according to the ACTFL Proficiency
Guidelines. The National Foreign Language Resource Center,
located at Georgetown University and the Center for Applied
Linguistics (CAL) in Washington, D.C., is sponsoring a SOPI rater
training workshop for the Chinese Speaking Test (CST), in
conjunction with the ACTFL/CLTA '93 conference.
The workshop will familiarize participants with the philosophy and format of the
SOPI in Chinese and train them to administer and score the test on the scale of
the ACTFL Proficiency Guidelines. After completing the two-day workshop,
participants will be issued a certificate from CAL.
Workshop participants receive, free of charge, all materials
necessary to administer and score the SOPI at their own
institutions. These materials include Examinee Handbooks, a copy
of the official Test Manual, copies of the Examinee Test
Booklets, a copy of the Master Test Tape and scoring sheets. For self-
training after the workshop, a training tape and a training manual will
also be distributed during the workshop.

A nominal and non-refundable registration fee of $10 (Payable to CAL) is
required to reserve a place in the workshop. Space is limited to 25 attendees
only. Interested parties can register for the CAL SOPI workshop through CAL
