• The principal, instructional coordinator, guidance director, the Latin teacher, or any other designee may administer the exams.

  • The time limit for taking the exams is 45 minutes. If the demographic information has been completed before the day of the exam, the time limit is 40 minutes.

  • ALL STUDENTS OF THE SAME LEVEL must take the exam during the same time period. The test administrator should try to seat students of the same level apart from one another. No make-up exams are allowed after the fact.

  • Teacher should call the NLE Office (888-378-7721) before the day the exam is to be given to inquire about students with special needs or for issues regarding scheduling.

  • When taking the exam online, students should be warned NOT to translate the exam from English into any other language. Google Translate and other programs are becoming increasingly good at providing translations from Latin, and the NLE would not want to disqualify any student from participating in the exam. The NLE does receive from Lingco a list of exams which have been translated and into which language they were changed. Take a look at this explanation of "Tracked Events" for online test-takers.

  • Teachers may not formally take the exam(s) and submit their results for scoring and awards.

  • When students taking the paper exam are finished, the testing administrator should count completed answer sheets, and check test materials for any missing answer sheets.

  • The NLE collects the grade level and level of Latin for each student. At this time, we are not collecting further demographic data. 

  • Answer sheets for paper exams must be returned and postmarked the same day the exam is given, or the last day of administration if different levels are given on different days.

  • No answer sheets for paper exams mailed separately from the school’s package will be accepted without prior permission.

  • The last day exam may be taken and answer sheets returned is MARCH 15, 2024.

  • Exams are not to be seen by the Latin Teacher prior to the day the exams are to be given.
