PDF-E-003 | Theoretical Framework for the CLB and NCLC
(e-version ISBN 978-1-897100-45-5)
The Theoretical Framework for the Canadian Language Benchmarks and Niveaux de compétence linguistique canadiens is a companion document to the Canadian Language Benchmarks.
This document provides a more in-depth study of the CLB. It provides an overview of the CLB including:
- global profiles of Benchmarks 1 to 12
- theoretical background
- rating scales
- glossary of terms
In order to make the CLB a practical, usable document, the competencies and standards had to be considerably compressed and simplified. Much of the in-depth discussion of language ability or proficiency omitted from the CLB has been included in this document.
