Homeschool students are eligible to take the National Spanish Exams
- The Homeschool Teacher makes arrangements for his/her student(s) to take the exam under the supervision of a sponsoring Spanish teacher. (The sponsoring Spanish teacher is defined as a Spanish teacher in an accredited institution who regularly administers the NSE).
- Each student taking the exam at the Sponsoring School is adequately proctored.
*These requirements ensure that no one can challenge the exam results of any student(s).
- It is the responsibility of the Homeschool Teacher to find a Sponsoring Teacher in an accredited institution (called the Sponsoring School).
- The Homeschool student(s) must take the exam at the Sponsoring School when the Sponsoring Teacher administers the exam to their students.
*If the Homeschool Teacher needs assistance finding a sponsoring teacher, they should call the National Spanish Exams Office at (219) 465-2100.
Neither the Homeschool Teacher nor the Sponsoring Teacher should register any Homeschool students.
First: The Homeschool Teacher should fill out the Homeschool Application Form. This form must be sent via email to the National Spanish Exams Office as a record of all students who will be taking the NSE in the sponsoring school. (See contact us.)
Once the Homeschool Application Form has been completed, the Homeschool Coordinator (staff member in the NSE Office) will oversee that registration of Homeschool Students is completed correctly.
On or about February 22, the Sponsoring Teacher will receive a list of usernames and passwords for all students registered. It will be the job of the NSE Administrator to send out username(s) and passwords(s) of student(s) to the Proctoring Teacher.
*Note: The deadline for homeschool applications is January 15, 2022.
The Sponsoring Teacher must familiarize themselves with the test administration procedures and be able to log in to the master Quia account.
This account is primarily used to "add an attempt" should a student have problems during the test.
All test results will be sent to the Sponsoring Teacher, whose responsibility it will be to forward individual results to the Homeschool Teacher.
The cost per student for Homeschool Teachers and Students will be the same as the cost for all other teachers and their students.
Cost per Teacher
The teacher fee to give the National Spanish Exams is $75 (without an AATSP membership).
However, if the homeschool teacher is a member of the AATSP then the teacher fee is waived, as giving the National Spanish Exams is a benefit of AATSP membership.
Cost per Student
The cost per student is a $5 national fee per student.
