Credit Through Testing

  • Loudoun County Public Schools allow students with the ability to comprehend and communicate in languages other than English, to earn high school credits through State-approved world language assessments. The Credit Through Testing (CTT) exam measures students’ language proficiency in order to award two high school world language credits. 

    The Credit Through Testing (CTT) exam is designed to assess students’ first language proficiency, and is available for students in grades 9 through 12 only, whose first language is not English.  The following languages will be available for the Credit Through Testing exam: Arabic, Bengali, Chinese/Mandarin, Farsi, French, German, Hindi, Japanese, Korean, Punjabi, Russian, Spanish, Tagalog/Filipino, Tamil, Telugu, Urdu, and Vietnamese.

    Students who pass the exam will also meet the language proficiency requirement to earn the Seal of Biliteracy (more information - World Language | Virginia Department of Education) at graduation.
