Exam Kits

The Technical Committee of the former Consortium for Language Access in the Courts developed two Practice Examination Kits for interpreters who are preparing to sit for a state court interpreter oral examination. These Practice Examination kits are available for purchase from the National Center for State Courts.

Practice Examination Kit in English

The Practice Examination Kit in English consists of a booklet containing a practice oral examination, a CD with audio files for the practice examination, and instructions for how to administer the practice examination to yourself. The booklet also contains instructions on how to score your practice examination and samples for creating a scoring dictionary. The practice examination materials are all in English so that this kit can be used by interpreters of any language. Order here.
