The American Sign Language Proficiency Assessment (ASL-PA) has been developed within the framework of a larger research project (Maller et al., 1999). The purpose of the ASL-PA was to develop an assessment instrument that could determine the level of ASL skills for non-native deaf children, with the goal of monitoring their acquisition process. The ASL-PA ought to assess a broad range of linguistic structures of ASL. The selected items were drawn from ASL acquisition studies. In addition, it was ought to be fairly efficient in administration and analysis, showing strong evidence for the psychometric properties. So far, no adequate ASL assessment tool reporting psychometric properties for assessing the ASL proficiency of deaf children has been developed.
