All AEPP funded program staff who administer the BEST Plus 2.0 Assessment must keep their 2.0 certification current through the remainder of FY24. For more information on BEST Plus 3.0 and BEST Literacy 2.0, please visit the AEPP website: https://www.acces.nysed.gov/aepp/news

BEST Plus Administrator Training. This is the initial training necessary to be certified to give the BEST Plus assessment. Once certified, Administrators are required to take a Refresher Training every year thereafter.

The BEST Plus, developed by Center for Applied Linguistics (CAL), is an individually administered face-to-face scripted oral interview designed to assess the English language proficiency of adult English learners. The BEST Plus is intended to assess interpersonal communication using everyday language. It integrates current knowledge in the assessment of speaking and listening skills with the latest knowledge and practice in educational measurement to present a precise, updated, and flexible oral assessment.

This training satisfies the NYSED requirement for all NYS BEST Plus administrators in adult literacy programs. This training must be completed once, followed by a BEST Plus Refresher Training every year thereafter.

This 6 hour training counts toward the 14 hours of professional development requirement for all NYSED funded program staff.
