Arizona Classroom Teacher Spanish Proficiency Examination

The Arizona Classroom Teacher Spanish Proficiency examination is required of individuals who are bilingual classroom teachers, bilingual resource teachers, bilingual specialists or otherwise responsible for providing bilingual instruction.

The examination includes four skill areas: listening, speaking, reading and writing and the test is taken on a computer.

The examination must be passed with a 70 percent score to receive a letter certifying Spanish language proficiency. The letter must be presented by the examinee to the State Certification office of the Arizona Department of Education when applying for the bilingual endorsement (PDF) or English as a second language (PDF) endorsement.

Only the first 28 people can be accommodated at one test session. Your registration for an examination or workshop is guaranteed only when the fee is received with your completed application. Please make sure you indicate both an examination and a workshop date. Fee information is listed on the application form below. Results will be sent out four weeks after the exam is taken. Please do not inquire about results until four weeks after the test date.

If the dates you requested are full, you will be contacted by phone or e-mail for your second choice. Failure to attend your chosen examination or workshop is an automatic forfeit of your application fee and requires you to reapply with a second fee.

Cost: $100

The fee entitles you to one exam and one workshop. Retakes of this exam will be $50 each for exam only.
