LinguaFolio® is a proficiency-based, student-centered, formative assessment tool that:
● empowers learners to manage their own language learning,
● provides a place for learners to collect evidence showing their growth, and
● facilitates language learning in and outside the classroom.

LinguaFolio®, developed by members of the National Council of State Supervisors for Languages (NCSSFL), is based on the European Language Portfolio (ELP) and the NCSSFL-ACTFL Can-Do Statements.The Can-Do statements are organized according to the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL) proficiency levels and sublevels. LinguaFolio® relates to proficiency scales from other organizations, such as the Interagency Language Roundtable (ILR) the Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) and the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR).


LinguaFolio® consists of three parts:

  • Biography: A record of personal language-learning history that helps learners to set goals and reflect on their language learning and intercultural experiences.Included is a series of self-assessment or Can-Do statements applicable to different language learners in world language, heritage language, dual language/immersion and ESL language programs.
  • Dossier: A collection of work samples chosen by the learner to document language learning progress with the skills in each mode of communication. It can be used to demonstrate the individual’s language abilities to others, including educators, parents, peers and potential employers.In the online version, files for the dossier can be uploaded next to the Can-Do statement(s) with which they are associated.
  • Passport/Global Profile: A snapshot of experiences and competencies in different languages. It is updated frequently and records formal qualifications, diplomas, self-assessments and summative test scores.


LinguaFolio® is aligned to the current North Carolina Standard Course of Study (SCS), which includes the English Language Development Standards and the World Language Essential Standards.

Here are some resources for North Carolina educators exploring, implementing or researching LinguaFolio:

e-LinguaFolio - > LinguaFolio Online (LFO) for North Carolina



The e-LinguaFolio was North Carolina's free version of an online LinguaFolio for any language learner. It was developed several years ago thanks to grant funds, and, until recently, it was housed on servers at the North Carolina Virtual Public School (NCVPS). The e-LinguaFolio software was available through June of 2018 and has now been closed.

NCDPI has been working with the Title VI Language Resource Center at the University of Oregon, the Center for Applied Second Language Studies (CASLS), to customize a LinguaFolio Online (LFO) for North Carolina, which replaces e-LinguaFolio.
A limited pilot of LFO for NC was done in Spring 2018, and, as a result, LFO for NC will be expanded during 2018-2019.
