Writing Proficiency Test (WPT)
Casa Xelajú’s Spanish immersion program is offering the Spanish ACTFL Writing Proficiency Test (WPT) test Preparation in Quetzaltenango, Guatemala. The WPT is a structured assessment to establish the student’s writting level of functional ability. This test is also used to measure the strengths and weaknesses of the student’s writing skills. Currently, the WPT is a written test that bilingual/Spanish and Spanish teachers must take in order to establish their language level and obtain their teaching credentials. It is also used by school districts to assess the oral profiency in Spanish before the candidate is hired. The levels for the WPT are Superior, Advanced, Intermediate and Novice.
