Sign Language Interpreter Training

In February 2013, ODE approved the use of the Sign Language Interpretation Accommodation for the applicable OAKS, OAKS Extended Assessment, and Kindergarten Assessment. Specifically, for sign language interpreters who plan to provide this support for students taking the Extended Assessments this year, in addition to the qualifications to serve in this capacity (cf. 2013-14 Accommodations Manual, Appendix C), please plan to attend a Qualified Assessor training provided by a 2013-14 Qualified Trainer. Contact your district and/or ESD in November/December for names of Qualified Trainers and when they plan to provide Qualified Assessor training.

For additional information please contact Brad Lenhardt at Brad.Lenhardt@state.or.us eMail or 503.947.5755.
