Seal of Biliteracy
The state of Florida passed a law in 2016 to give a seal of biliteracy to students who can prove a level of proficiency in English and another language. Upon meeting criteria, a student who has not already earned 4 credits in the language in which he/she qualifies, will be awarded up to 4 credits in the language.

Please only register for the test if you have already passed the 10th grade ELA/FSA with a 3 or higher or have an appropriate concordant score. Students younger than 10th grade should not register for this test.
Avant Assessment provides sample tests you can take to experience how the assessment flows and the types of questions for all levels of difficulty, but you will not receive a score at the end and you will not experience the computer-adaptive technology as in the actual test. You must complete the Reading before the Writing and the Listening before the Speaking sections.
If you have any questions, please contact Pam Benton in the Office of World Languages at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 727-588-6066.
