World Language Testing

Battle Ground Public Schools offers students the opportunity to earn World Language high school credits through remote World Language testing. Students who test proficiently can earn up to 4 World Language credits on their high school transcript. Students who earn credits and meet their high school English Language Arts district and state graduation requirements are eligible to earn the Seal of Biliteracy with their high school diploma. Credits earned and Seal of Biliteracy awards will be assigned prior to graduation in June. Battle Ground Public Schools partners with Avant Assessment and LTI for World Language Testing.
