Language Translation Scripts for State Assessments

Eligible Limited English Proficient (LEP) students whose native language is not available via an audio test format may have a language translator provide this accommodation. On reading tests, only directions, questions and answer choices are allowed to be translated. Reading passages must be read in English by students on reading tests. In general, the entire test for other test subjects may be translated.

Eligible LEP students may receive this test accommodation if they meet the following three conditions:

  • have been enrolled in US schools less than three years;
  • scored at a beginning or intermediate level in Reading on a test of English Language Proficiency; and
  • scored at a beginning or intermediate level in Writing on a test of English Language Proficiency.
