El Examen Nacional de Español ~ The National Spanish Exam
The National Spanish Exam is the most widely used test of Spanish in the United States. It is an online standardized assessment tool to measure a student's achievement and proficiency in Spanish.
The purpose of the National Spanish Exam (NSE) is:
1. to recognize achievement in the study of the Spanish language
2. to promote proficiency in interpretive communication in Spanish
3. to assess the national standards as they pertain to learning Spanish
4. to stimulate further interest in the teaching and learning of Spanish
Students from all levels of Spanish (1, 2, 3, 4 & AP) are encouraged to register for the NSE. The NSE is not a mandatory test, however it is expected that Honors and AP students will participate.
Registration begins in December and continues through mid-January. The NSE is administered in early to mid-March. Exact dates TBD.
Registration for the NSE costs $10 per student. Funds are set aside for students who want to participate but are unable to cover the cost.
