Equity & Instructional Services is excited to offer language assessments again FREE this school year to all NCSD 11th and 12th graders. This year’s assessments will be structured differently due to CDL. To prioritize student and staff safety, students will be able to register for a remote proctoring session on Wednesday, February 10, or Wednesday, April 21 (non-school days). Students will be able to login to the assessment online with their Chromebooks while an NCSD staff member proctors the assessment and provides support live in a Google Meet. In addition to the STAMP assessment, we will be supporting the WorldSpeak assessment. By adding this assessment, we are able to offer a wider array of language options. 

 

  • STAMP assessment : Arabic, French, German, Hebrew, Hindi, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Mandarin/ Cantonese (simplified and traditional), Polish, Portuguese (Brazilian), Russian, Spanish

 

  • WorldSpeak assessment: Amharic, Armenian, Chin (Hakha), Chuukese, Czech, Filipino (Tagalog), Haitian-Creole, Hmong, Ilocano, Marathi, Marshallese, Samoan, Somali Maay Maay, Somali Maxaa, Tamil, Telugu, Turkish, Urdu, Vietnamese, Yup’ic

 

The STAMP (STAndards-Based Measurement of Proficiency) and the WorldSpeak assessments are proficiency-based assessments that award students up to 4 high school elective credits (AR) for knowledge of a language other than English. In conjunction with meeting the Essential Skills of reading and writing in English, students are able to use the language assessments to demonstrate literacy in a partner language and fulfill the requirements to earn the State Seal of Biliteracy at graduation. The Essential Skills in reading and writing requirement is currently suspended for graduates pursuing the Biliteracy Seal during CDL.
