ALTA is the chosen testing provider for a number of legal staffing agencies that hire personnel for foreign language document review services. For this reason, we have developed a suite of reading assessments in over 50 languages—from Albanian to Vietnamese—to help organizations like yours determine who has the requisite level of language skill to do the job. And because the tests are performed online and are scored automatically, we make it easy and efficient for you to screen candidates and make hiring decisions on the spot.
The Legal Reading Assessment is an online test designed to verify whether or not a candidate can read and comprehend legal documentation written in the target language at a pre-determined level of skill based on our protocol. Each test consists of a variety of sample documentation written in the language being tested, with each passage being followed by a series of multiple-choice questions about the information contained within. Scoring is done on a percentage basis, making it easy for you to determine which of your candidates can read and comprehend legal documentation in the languages you need.
ALTA’s reading assessments are available through a password-protected website, and are simple to administer. Just log in with your credentials, register your candidates, and select the tests for them to take. Candidates can either take the tests on your site, or from a proctored location. Candidates simply read the material and mark their answers within the time allotted. After submitting their responses, the test is automatically scored and results are sent by email to your designated company administrator. The Legal Reading Assessment is available at per test.
