National Japanese Exam 2016

The National Japanese Exam (NJE) is an online, proficiency-oriented, standards-based and culture-related assessment tool for middle school (junior high), high school, and college students who are studying Japanese as a second language. It was developed by AATJ (American Association of Teachers of Japanese) as a way for such students to test their Japanese skills and participate in a nation-wide exam with awards for high achievement.

The NJE helps teachers see students’ strengths and weaknesses in various areas including reading and listening. Teachers can use the results to give various school-level awards to students (Gold Level, Silver Level, Bronze Level, Honorable Mention, and Participation certificates) and to highlight the success of their Japanese programs and celebrate their students' accomplishments.

The NJE is an entirely online test that teachers administer in their classrooms. It features Listening and Reading sections at three levels.

Registration for the 2016 NJE is open! Registration will close at 5:00 p.m. Pacific time on February 19, 2016. The cost of the exam is $9 for the AATJ members (Nonmember fee is $17).
