CCSS. EngageNY. NYS P-12 Common Core. CEFR. One of the aims of the "Common European Framework of Reference: Learning, Teaching, Assessment", Council of Europe reference document for the European Language Portfolio, is to help partners to describe the levels of proficiency required by existing standards, tests and examinations in order to facilitate comparisons between different systems of qualifications.


For this purpose the Council of Europe has developed a European Framework with common reference levels. There does appear in practice to be a wide consensus on the number and nature of levels appropriate to the organisation of language learning and the public recognition of achievement. These six levels are an interpretation of the classic division into basic, intermediate and advanced. The scheme proposed in the "Common European Framework of Reference: Learning, Teaching, Assessment" adopts a "Hypertext" branching principle, starting from an initial division into three broad levels: Basic User: A1 and A2.
