So, today Meadow and I went up to Salt Lake to take the written part of the National Interpreter Certification test. This test is 150 questions and you must get a scaled score of 500 or better to pass the test. There are different categories of test questions about culture, code of ethics, interpreting situations, understand the structure of ASL, etc. Well the good news is.......
Now I just have to catch up on all my homework that I've neglected recently.... : ) p.s. Meadow passed too. We are both just that cool!
So, I signed up for the written NIC test. That is the National Interpreter Certification test. AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!! The written part alone is $340. It's 150 multiple choice questions and I'm taking it on the 31st of October. LESS THAN A MONTH!!!! If/When I pass the test, I can apply for the ACIPP (Advanced Certification Interpreter Preparedness Program) for the Spring semester. Here's to hoping!
It would take far to long to tell you everything that we did this summer, so I've decided to do it unjustice by putting up lots of pictures to tell the story of our summer! Enjoy!
