Candidates who wish to earn an endorsement in Chinese, Russian or Japanese will have transcripts evaluated during the admissions process. No TSPC test is available for these languages, so candidates will be required to take the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL) tests, Oral Proficiency Interview (OP) and Writing Profeciency Test (WPT),a dministered by Language Testing International (LTI). The minimal level of proficiency required for both tests must be Intermediate/High. Tests must be passed prior to the practicum experience.

Academic Procedures

  • Candidates must submit a passing score for the subject area test(s) required by TSPC appropriate to the endorsement area
  • Candidates may not register for the practicum requirement until testing and coursework requirements are fulfilled. In some circumstances, conditional assignments or previous licensed work experience may replace the practicum requirement. Permission of adviser is required to waive the practicum.
