World Language Competency-Based Testing
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
