Illustrative scales for the Common European Framework for Languages often lack statements for the (highest) C levels: C1 and C2 are often defined by 'As B2' or 'As C1'.
As part of our work contributing to the English Profile, we have been working on a set of Can Do statements for the English Profile to help fill this gap. We invited educators to judge the difficulty of our new descriptors and give their comments in a web survey.
An account of this project can be found in the book Language Functions Revisited Theoretical and Empirical Bases for Language Construct Definition Across the Ability Range by Anthony Green (2012) published by Cambridge University Press, ISBN: 978052118499.
