Competency Testing and Credits for World Languages

Students who speak, read, and write a language other than English can earn world language credits in high school and college by demonstrating proficiency. Students who demonstrate proficiency on nationally recognized proficiency assessments may be able to receive competency credits on their high school transcript.

See how World Language credits and proficiency relate to Career and College Goals.

For students in K–12 grades, our goal is to develop a system that supports any bilingual student to receive world language credits by demonstrating language proficiency. In order to increase student access, OSPI has established a process to empower and engage school districts to set up competency testing for their bilingual students and support third party agencies and to offer testing in their communities.
