Test Preparation Requirements

Requirements

Print out and submit the Computer System Requirements to the computer/technology department at your school to ensure that your computers have the minimum and recommended system configurations for using Quia, the online company that hosts the National Spanish Examinations.

 

Provide time for students to complete the Online Practice Examination from last year's exam in order

  1. to allow teachers, students, and school computer technicians the opportunity to see a sample version of the online exam
  2. to determine if there are any problems with technology prior to test day.

 

Teachers who do not administer the practice exams run the risk of having problems on test day.

Suggestions

Teachers may utilize the following tools to better prepare their students for the NSE:

 

    1. Use the Online Practice Exercises as part of general computer lab or home practice throughout the school year.
      1. achievement - specifications for vocabulary and specifications for grammar
      2. performance (interpretive communication) in reading and listening.
