The National Japanese Exam (NJE) is an online, proficiency-oriented, standards-based and culture-related assessment tool for students who are studying Japanese as a second language. The purpose of the NJE is to recognize achievement in the study of Japanese language and culture, to motivate students to further study and explore Japanese language and culture, to advocate for standards-based,proficiency-oriented, and content-based teaching and learning of Japanese, and to serve as a diagnostic assessment of Japanese language skills
Teachers who conduct the NJE may award certificates to students (Gold Level, Silver Level, Bronze Level, Honorable Mention, and Participation certificates), and the exam results can be used to highlight the success of their Japanese programs and celebrate their students' accomplishments. The NJE also helps teachers identify strong and weak areas in their teaching as well as to see students’ strengths and weaknesses in various areas including skimming, scanning, contextual reading & listening, grammar and vocabulary.
