Quality in the Implementation of the Common European Framework of Reference (QualiCEFR) Project
QualiCEFR is a groundbreaking SSHRC-funded project that aims to provide a quality approach to CEFR implementation. The first international comparative study about CEFR implementation practices, and it will employ a Quality Assurance (QA) process as its methodological approach. Project goals are to facilitate QA-informed CEFR implementation processes, advance knowledge related to such processes, and bridge the current knowledge-transfer gap among countries.
We would like to ask CASLT members to contribute to the first phase of the project by sharing news of CEFR implementation initiatives in your region.
We will be comparing CEFR implementation in Switzerland, which played a leading role in the conceptualization of the CEFR and has been very active in early implementation, and in Canada, where CEFR implementation is well underway. We will investigate CEFR-related language policy initiatives in the two contexts in order to identify successful ones. In the second phase, we will use these findings to develop an appropriate QA template to support stakeholders in CEFR implementation.
