Those unable to attend the workshop may earn CTLE credit by viewing the recording of the workshop (above) and then answering at least seven out of ten questions correctly on Post-Assessment #1 listed below.  For the convenience of our World Language educators, there are multiple versions of the post-assessment available should the required score not be achieved on the first attempt.  If taking more than one version of the post-assessment, participants must take them in order, starting with Post-Assessment #1.  If the desired score is not achieved, the participant may take subsequent post-assessments in order.  It is NOT permissible to choose which version of the post-assessment to take.  Credit will NOT be awarded to participants who take these post-assessments "out of order".
