About the National Spanish Examinations

The National Spanish Examinations are recognized by many administrative and teaching organizations across local, state, and national levels. The National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP) has placed this program on the NASSP National Advisory List of Contests and Activities for 2016-2017.

The purpose of the National Spanish Examination is:

  • to recognize achievement in the study of the Spanish language
  • to promote proficiency in interpretive communication in the Spanish language
  • to assess the national standards as they pertain to learning Spanish
  • to stimulate further interest in the teaching and learning of Spanish

Additionally, many teachers state that they use the National Spanish Examinations to prepare students to take future standardized tests such as AP, IB, SAT II and college placement exams. Many administrators state that they can use data from the National Spanish Examinations to create reports to show how their schools have improved over an academic year.
