In total, 16 students won medals in the online test of Spanish skills: four gold, 10 silver and two bronze. Another 20 students won honorable mentions.

The National Spanish Examinations are “online, standardized assessment tools for Grades 6 -12, given voluntarily by over 3,800 teachers throughout the United States to measure proficiency and achievement of students who are studying Spanish as a second language,” according to the examinations’ Web site.

More than 154,000 students took the test in 2014, according to the site.

According to the site, the purpose of the National Spanish Examination is

  • to recognize achievement in the study of the Spanish language
  • to promote proficiency in interpretive communication in the Spanish language
  • to assess the national standards as they pertain to learning Spanish
  • to stimulate further interest in the teaching and learning of Spanish.
