EIPA Performance Test
The Educational Interpreter Performance Assessment (EIPA) is a tool designed to evaluate the voice-to-sign and sign-to-voice interpreting skills of interpreters who work in the elementary and secondary school classroom setting.
The EIPA Performance Test is approximately two hours. Testing times are 10am, 12pm, and 2pm. It evaluates the ability to expressively interpret classroom content and discourse and the ability to receptively interpret student or teen sign language. It is not limited to any one sign language or system. EIPA is used to evaluate interpreters who work with students and teenagers who use predominately American Sign Language (ASL), Manually-Coded English (MCE) and Pidgin Sign English (PSE); and EIPA-CS is used to evaluate interpreters who work with students and teenagers who use Cued Speech (CS).
