Abstract: The purpose of this pilot project was to develop and validate the Samoan oral proficiency interview (OPI), which was designed to assess the Samoan language needs of the students at the LFSLC. To that end, the following research questions were posed about the Samoan OPI: 1. To what degree are the scores on the Samoan OPI normally distributed? 2. To what degree are the scores on the Samoan OPI reliable? 3. To what degree are the scores on the Samoan OPI valid in terms of their relationship to participants’ ages, school grades, and months at LFSLC, but also in terms of test design?
