Post-Test Results Explanation (PTRE)


This explanation is designed to provide interpreters, who have already been tested or assessed unsuccessfully for certification, with assistance to benefit as much as possible from a detailed explanation of their testing results. An online video session will be scheduled to accomplish this.

An Overview
Interpreters who have taken a certification test and have yet to pass, have likely received their results from at least one of the following exams:

  • Educational Interpreter Performance Assessment (EIPA)
    Given by Boys Town National Research Hospital
  • Educational Sign Skills Evaluation (ESSE)
    Given by The SEE Center

When interpreters receive the results from these exams, they may find it difficult to understand the technical terminology contained in the feedback and comments. For a nominal $50.00 fee, our professional evaluators will help interpreters sort through all of the "industry jargon" and develop a strategy for retesting.

How PTRE Works
We require an electronic copy of the results from your most recent certification exam, in either .JPG or .PDF format. The file(s) must be e-mailed as an attachment to with the subject line: Test Results - Your Name.

Once we have received your results and the fee has been paid, we will review your results and contact you within one week (7 days), to set up a private 30-minute video conference. During this session, a thorough explanation of your results will be provided and a retesting strategy will be discussed.
