Students who speak, read and write a language other than English can earn world language credits by demonstrating proficiency. Students who demonstrate proficiency
on nationally recognized proficiency assessments may be able to receive competency credits on their transcript.
Road Map Project – Competency-based Credits
The Washington State School Directors' Association, the State Board of Education, and OSPI,
developed a model policy and procedure to guide school districts. The OSPI World Languages program supports districts as they adopt the model policy and procedure.
School districts across the state offer testing during the school year. The goal is to make testing opportunities accessible to students and to support districts that would like to provide testing sites in their schools.
CEDARS denotes Competency Credits on transcripts.
