World Language Competency-Based Testing

General Information

  • Any student in grades 9-12 who has obtained language skills outside of the classroom can earn high school credit in any language by taking a World Language Competency-Based Assessment.

    Students who are taking a class cannot receive additional credits by taking the competency-based test. The grade earned in the class takes precedence over the competency-based testing score. Seniors in the 4th year or beyond in a language may take these tests to show eligibility for the Seal of Biliteracy.

    Step 1: Register for the test, according to the school you currently attend - be sure to identify the language you will be testing. 

    Step 2: Attend testing at your school during the scheduled time


    Testing for the 2018-19 school year will take place at the high school campuses.
