National Latin Exam Offers Online Testing Option

As you fill out your application for the 2018 NLE, you will notice that you have the choice to give the exam via the traditional paper and pencil method, or you can have your students take the exam online.  The same protocols still apply whether the proctor is giving the test online or on paper.  All students taking the same level of the exam must take the exam at the same time. 

You are also being asked to give us specific numbers for how many students at level III are taking the Latin III-IV Prose exam and how many students at level IV are taking the Latin III-IV Prose exam (the same with the Latin III-IV Poetry exam and the Latin V-VI exam).  Specific log-in codes will be provided for your students based on what level exam they are taking. Please fill out your application completely to provide accurate information.

 If you choose the online testing option, you will receive an access code on your confirmation postcard.  Please make sure to put your postcard in a safe place.  About a week before you are scheduled to give the exam, you will be able to use your access code to obtain student logins for each student participating at your school.  The proctor is still in charge of overseeing the administration of the exam.
