AISM Parents,

Late in the month of September, students taking French and Arabic in Grades 2 – 10 took the second only Avant STAMP (STAndards based Measurement of Proficiency) test in West Africa, to assist your students in their French and Arabic Learning Proficiency.

Please note that we gave at the end of last month as it takes up to 5 days to process the results. This assessment is designed as a “DIAGNOSTIC” tool. It will help us assist your students in their areas of growth, see their progress, and understand the areas that still need to be mastered in the French language.

One other quick note: we have been using the Spanish MAP test since the start of last school year. This is done, once again, to help our teaching team know the areas that our students need to focus on.

AISM was determined this year to be the “first school in the region” to administer this test so we can “see where our students are in their second language acquisition”, in May we will test again, to measure their progress in their Second Language over time.

Just like the MAP test, STAMP is an adaptive test “designed to adjust to a student’s level so s/he is challenged, but not overwhelmed.” Students are exposed to real-world questions and are tested in four different sections: Reading, Writing, Listening, and Speaking.

The results for most students will be sent home this afternoon. If you have any questions, please contact your Foreign Language teacher for an individual meeting.

For more information on the test, you may visit the website at:

We are looking forward to using STAMP again, to “assess” our students growth in their second language, and to help students learn and teachers teach!
