Anotace
The standardized language tests according to STANAG 6001 may be regarded as perhaps the most essential high-stakes tests for adults in the Czech Republic. Required as proof of language proficiency by the Czech military, the Ministry of Defence, and the University of Defence, these tests impact the careers and posting opportunities of approximately 30,000 military and state employees and students, while representing and symbolizing the Czech military’s membership in and commitment to NATO. This paper maps how testing according to STANAG 6001 impacts strategic personnel planning in the Czech military, highlighting how these tests have gradually assumed a strategic role both in the development of the Czech military and its position vis-a-vis the Alliance. The paper also presents and comments on issues still plaguing the NATO-wide testing standardization process and introduces and discusses the measures undertaken by BILC and Ministries of Defence – calibration seminars and the Benchmark Advisory Test – to ensure continued alignment among differing testing mechanisms and formats based on the STANAG 6001 descriptors. The overall aim of the paper is to introduce and analyze a little-known, but widely used and strategically significant language-proficiency testing framework and its use in the Czech Republic.
