Hello, my name is Star Grieser and I’m the director of testing for the Center for the Assessment of Sign Language Interpretation. I just wanted provide some updates as we know people are anxiously awaiting for the release of the new test delivery system – the  CASLI Exam System – which is currently in the midst of beta testing. We’re doing this beta testing while at the same time we’re working to set up more test sites to administer the NIC Interview and Performance Exams for us and getting those sites are ready for our exam candidates.

In our commitment to quality, we make sure that each test site adheres to our technical and test sites specifications.During beta, we realized we needed to add an additional step for Quality Assurance to make sure that each test site is ready to administer the exams, and ready for our candidates. This means that the Beta Testing Process is taking more time than we originally thought, however it’s critical that each test site meet all of the criteria we’ve set before opening up to administer exams.

We know that there are candidates eager to take their NIC Interview and Performance Exams as soon as possible. We’re working as quickly as possible to get everything set up for those candidates while at the same time making sure that everything is set up correctly.

Thank you so much for your patience and understanding. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us. Thanks so much for watching!
