NSE Announces an Additional Option for Testing

Beginning with the 2018-2019 academic year, NSE will provide two options to teachers as follows:

  1. NSE – National Spanish Examinations
    All registration and test administration procedures will remain unchanged from 2019.
  2.  
  3. NSA – National Spanish Assessments
    AATSP announces a new series of examinations called the National Spanish Assessments.
    The National Spanish Assessments (NSA) are the non-contest version of the NSE.  The NSA is valid assessment tool written from the same specifications and standards as the National Spanish Examinations.
  • Registration and testing can take place throughout the academic year.
  • The cost of the NSA is $3 per student.
  • Each of the four modules (Interpretive Reading, Interpretive Listening, Vocabulary, and Grammar) can be administered separately.
  • Each of the four modules can be administered twice and at different points in the year to show growth.
  • The NSA is not part of the NSE contest, and there are no prizes nor scholarships.
  • Results are available immediately through the teacher’s Quia account.
  • Results are provided in points and percentages, not in percentiles.
