The National Spanish Examination (NSE), the National Spanish Challenge (NSC), the National Spanish Assessments (NSA), and the National Portuguese Examinations (NPE) are programs of the American Association of Teachers of Spanish and Portuguese (AATSP) and are committed to providing teachers with opportunities to continue their professional development so as to design instruction and assessments from first-hand learning experiences.

For teachers who administer the National Spanish Examinations, the National Portuguese Examinations, the National Spanish Challenge, or the National Spanish Assessments, the NSE offers stipends to attend the AATSP Annual Conference!
