The aim of this study was to conduct a qualitative evaluation of the effectiveness of the European Language Portfolio (ELP) as a pedagogical and assessment tool with reference to a particular learning/teaching context (primary schools in Armenia) and from the perspective of those directly engaged in working with the ELP. The ELP appeared to function as an efficient instrument for assessing and documenting language proficiency and as a valuable tool for improving language learning and developing learner autonomy. The ELP was found to be fulfilling most of its basic pedagogical functions. The existing issues mainly related to the integration of the ELP into regular class work, the unclear status of the ELP, and its perceived incompatibility with the official curriculum. Based on the findings, the study calls for further supportive actions on the part of various stakeholders that appear to be necessary for the successful large-scale implementation of the ELP, with its potential to serve as basis for benchmarking and quality control in Armenian language education.
