Carol,

Most of our faculty members permit students to use electronic
dictionaries during tests, although students typically use them only for
courses during their first or second years, when they are still becoming
proficient with English.  Later, a student majoring in business might
use a dictionary when taking a test in a history class used to meet a
general education requirement, but not usually otherwise.

Subject: ESL use of electronic dictionary

We have very demanding allied health departments
(physical therapy and physician's assistant) who are
in need of guidance about support to a student with
English as a Second Language. Now in his third year,
the student is asking to be able to use an electronic
dictionary which provides Japanese to English translation.
Has anyone worked with students using this tool?
Is this allowed during testing?
Is it allowed during licensure testing?
Thank you,
Carol
