There are two mandatory costs associated with giving the National Spanish Assessments (NSA): (1) cost per teacher and (2) cost per student.
Cost per Teacher. All teachers administering the NSA must be current members of the American Association of Teachers of Spanish and Portuguese (AATSP), the sponsoring organization of the NSA.
Teachers may only register students who are currently enrolled in their classes. For the NSA, teachers may enroll students for any level of exam. Unlike the National Spanish Examinations (NSE), the level of the National Spanish Assessments (NSA) does not need to match the level of the course in which the student is currently enrolled.
NOTE: To ensure that students are enrolled in the registering teacher's class at the correct level, the NSE national office reserves the right to request that each participating teacher submit an official class list signed by an administrator.
Cost per Student. Each school pays a $3 fee per examination. This fee includes the opportunity to take all four modules of the NSA at two different points in the school year. (That’s a total of eight (8) exams for $3.)
Cost per school / district. Schools requiring additional forms (such as vendor packets, affidavits, notarized or other legal documents) will be charged an additional processing fee. The amount of the processing fee is determined by the complexity of the documentation required and is generally between $25 and $50.
The NSE is sponsored by a non-profit organization and cannot absorb of the cost of completing additional documentation required by some school districts.
NOTE: All invoices must be paid before usernames and passwords can be sent out.
