    1. 1/2: any student who has completed or who is enrolled in the equivalent of 1/2 year of Latin; limited to 7th and 8th graders
    2. Level I: any student who has completed only Latin I, or who is enrolled in Latin I, regardless of grade level
    3. Level II: any student who has completed only Latin I and II, or who is enrolled in Latin II, regardless of grade level
    4. Levels III, IV, and V: same procedure

The student is to indicate on his/her registration sheet and on all answer sheets the level of Latin. Many tests consist of one examination to be taken by students of all levels.  Students’ papers will be separated into levels for grading and will be scored according to number of correct answers.

Rules:

  1. Students may take as many tests in one testing session as they have signed up for, but will be given no additional time.
  2.  A student must pre-register to take a test to ensure there will be enough copies available.
  3. Students must arrive within five (5) minutes of the starting time. Students may not leave the testing area during the examination and return to resume taking the test.
  4. Students are not expected to bring pencils to the testing area. Pencils will be provided. Tests are computer corrected. Be careful to fill only one choice for each answer. Stray pencil marks cause the computer to reject an answer.
  5. Be sure to include NAME, STUDENT NUMBER, SCHOOL and LEVEL on each answer sheet.
  6. The answer sheet and score of every contestant will be returned to the respective school in the teacher’s packet at the close of the convention.
  7. Those who write the test questions will not be an LJCL member with students attending convention. They will strive to avoid ambiguous questions. Tests come from other states in JCL, from previous NJCL Convention tests, from other nationally recognized tests, and from classroom teachers all over the U.S.
  8. Grammar tests for each level will be written based on the National Latin Exam syllabus.
