Databases & Directories

The Center for Applied Linguistics provides online access to the following databases and directories:

The Foreign Language Assessment Directory (FLAD) is a free, searchable directory of information on more than 200 tests in over 90 languages. The FLAD serves as a starting point for teachers and educators to search for foreign language assessments. CAL has developed an online tutorial to serve as a companion resource to the FLAD, Understanding Assessment: A Guide for Foreign Language Educators.

CAL is compiling database of heritage language programs across the United States. Profiles of community-based, K–12, and higher education programs are available on our Heritage Languages website
