Registration Open for World Language Exam for High School Credit

February 25, 2016

Battle Ground Public Schools is offering students in grades 9-12 the opportunity to get high school credit for world languages by taking an exam on Saturday, March 12. Tests will be offered for students who speak Russian, Spanish, Arabic, Chinese, French, German, and Portuguese through a computerized assessment called the Assessment of Performance toward Proficiency in Language (AAPPL). 

World language competency credits will be awarded to students based on their test performance, and at the discretion of the student's school district. Students who perform well on the test will also be eligible to earn the Washington State Seal of Biliteracy upon graduation from high school. 

Battle Ground Public Schools high school students interested in taking the exam must return an application to their high school ASB office and pay a $20 fee no later than March 3. Out-of-district students can also sign up for the test, however, they will be put on a waiting list. Out-of-district students must complete the exam application and pay a $25 fee at the Battle Ground Public Schools district office, 11104 NE 149th Street, Brush Prairie. The fee will be refunded if the student cannot be tested due to enrollment capacity.
