World Language Competency-Based Testing

General Information

  • Any student in grades 8-12 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 2: Register for a LinguaFolio Workshop and a LinguaFolio Account

    Step 3: Register for the correct test and day

    If you are taking the STAMP test, you do not need to attend the LinguaFolio workshop

    If you are taking the WPT/OPIc, WPT/OPI, ALTA, Proctored Writing/OPI, or a Proctored Writing/Oral Language Test, you are required to complete a LinguaFolio self-assessment either at home or at your selected LinguaFolio session.
