This Wednesday was early release, for many that meant going home or hanging out with friends, enjoying the extra hours outside of school. However, a large group of student stayed after school to take the Avant STAMP (STAndards-based Measurement of Proficiency) test that assessed students ability to manage another language. Tests were offered in several languages such as Arabic, Korean, Japanese, Spanish, and many others. Students had the opportunity to take this test in the fall. When they received their scores, they were able to see which areas they needed to work on to obtain the Seal of Biliteracy in the spring. This Seal indicates that the person whose earned it is proficient in another language. For a student to obtain the seal, they must score a 6 or higher in listening, reading, writing, and speaking. The students who were not able to obtain the seal this time around, the AP test is another opportunity where if they score a 4 or 5, they may obtain the Seal. However, don’t be discouraged, if you’ll be attending high school next year, you are eligible to retake the test in the fall of 2019 and have another go at the STAMP to obtain your Seal of Biliteracy, for now study hard!
