The National German Exam is administered yearly to over 20,000 high school students. The exam provides individual feedback, rewards students through an extensive regional and national prize program, and creates a sense of accomplishment. Exam results provide teachers a means of comparing students in all regions of the country and data to help inform curricular decisions.
