EIPA: Written Test

TO REGISTER FOR THE EIPA: WT CLICK HERE (COMING SOON)

The family of Educational Interpreter Performance Assessments (EIPA) have become the national standard for assessing Educational Interpreters. Interpreting for children with developmental language assets is different than interpreting for adults with fully functioning language  - in addition - interpreting in a school setting which promotes learning, literacy, and ultimately high stakes testing is vastly different than community interpreting. 

The EIPA Written Test and Knowledge Standards (EIPA: WT) evaluates an interpreter's understanding of information that is necessary for working with students in an educational setting and includes the following content areas:

Culture

Education

English

Interpreting

Linguistics

Literacy and Tutoring

Professional Role and Conduct

Student Cognitive and Language Development  

Technology & Medical Aspects of Deafness

The test itself consists of computer generated, 177 multiple-choice questions and can take up to three hours to complete.
