  • Language Other Than English Equivalency Exam (LOTE)


     

  •  
    The LAUSD Language Other than English (LOTE) Equivalency Exam is a tool to help schools determine if a student in grades 8-12 has the proficiency in Spanish, French, Mandarin, Arabic, and Korean to be placed in its course sequence and be validated to meet the minimum requirement for languages other than English for LAUSD graduation and California State University/University of California admissions "A-G".
     
    The exam consists of two parts: reading comprehension and writing composition, and may be taken at any time during the year. Students who pass both parts of the exam have satisfied the minimum requirement for languages other than English for LAUSD graduation and California State University/University of California admissions "A-G".
     
    Schools are responsible for the administration, scoring, and recording of student performance on the LAUSD LOTE Equivalency Exam.
