Standardized Na'vi Proficiency Testing
« on: June 26, 2018, 12:07:04 pm »
Kaltxì ma frapo!

I'm in the process of of developing the first standardized Na'vi proficiency exams, and I need you!

This is an all-call for highly experienced Na'vi speakers to lend input and assist in the process of proofreading and standardizing these exams. Find me on Discord for more information and a link to the project's hub.

Irayo nìli!

Very interesting idea, what's its source? Is there any interest from public to do testing of Na'vi proficiency?

You miss a lot on the Discord, mate :D

Yeah. There's vested interest in the development of them. I've actually finished the first reading exam and am working on the first writing exam currently.

Our first test similar to this is the NeotrekkerZ Proficiency Test. There was much interest then, too. A common question every now and then through the years has been, "Where is the line between Beginner / Intermedieate / Advanced, etc.?" People want to know where they stand and where to improve. There has never been any kind of standard for these things before.

Wou, I wasn't aware there was some such test prepared in the past. Apparently I'm still not familiar with some parts of this forum... ;D

Okay, so I took NeotrekkerZ Proficiency Test.  It's honest, when it calls itself difficult and evil.  I noticed that it was really lacking a reading comprehension section, where the student has to read a paragraph in Na'vi and then answer questions about it (also in Na'vi, if you want to follow NeotrekkerZ pattern).  But I'm sure you've already addressed that.  Anyway, just my two cents.

This is an old test from 2010. ;)
Mako's test was made a couple of days ago and if you ask him, I'm sure he will will give you the links.

Oh, Mako has one together already?  I was confused, then.  I thought he wanted feedback on how to organize or construct it, but probably he just wanted proofreaders.  I'm sure he'd give me the links to his version, although maybe it's finished by now.  I could probably find him on Discord.
