Interpreter Assessment Testing
Linguist Education Online offers Interpretation Performance Assessment Tests (IPATs) to practicing interpreters, agencies who need to test their applicants, courts and hospitals who need to assess their employees or contractors.
These tests help determine the current skill level in the consecutive, simultaneous, and sight translation modes prior to taking certification tests or applying for work. This assessment can also be used by language service providers to screen their existing contract interpreters.
IPATs are administered in real time by a proctor over the Internet. The assessment is conducted by experienced certified interpreters and interpretation performance graders.
