The Educational Interpreter Performance Assessment (EIPA) is required for renewal of educational interpreter licenses in Wisconsin. This page addresses the process for those who provide Pk-12 interpreter services in Wisconsin school districts only.
All states have established standards for academic content across the grades. States are currently required to assess student knowledge for reading, math, and science. Wisconsin academic testing occurs in the fall for students in grades 3 through 8 and grade 10.
Wisconsin educators collaborated with educators from 12 other states to create alternate achievement standards aligned to the Common Core State Standards. These alternate achievement standards are called the Common Core Essential Elements (CCEE) in English Language Arts and Mathematics.
