Online App

Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience or frustration!

The initial release of the National Latin Exam Practice App is a free web-based application that has been created to give students the opportunity to prepare for the National Latin Exam and test their classical knowledge year-round, on demand, in an environment they can individually customize based on their level and time availability.

Based on a student's preferences, the National Latin Exam Online Practice App creates a randomized custom set of questions from previous National Latin Exams. The application recognizes correct answers with an "Optime!" response or redirects an incorrect answer with a hint of the correct response. Students are even provided a running tally of how many questions they have answered correctly in the current session, as well as a summary at the end of the quiz showing their score. The app also remembers which questions students answer correctly and removes them from the random pool that will be provided to the student the next time they access the application.
