The Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America Office of Education is pleased to announce that the World Language Comprehensive Examination in Modern Greek will be administered on Tuesday, June 20th, from 1:15 p.m. to 4:15 p.m.
The Comprehensive Examination in Modern Greek is “a locally developed foreign language examination” developed and administered by the Department of Greek Education of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America. Since 2012, the Greek LOTE Exam is being reviewed and evaluated annually by the Literacy and Language Assessment Office/ NYC Department of Education.
The World Language Comprehensive Exam in Modern Greek (formerly called the Greek LOTE Exam) is aligned to the Checkpoint B learning standards as described in the New York State Learning Standards for World Languages (Modern Languages) of the New York State Education Department. It assesses the language skills of the students in speaking, listening, reading, and writing the Modern Greek language.
To qualify for the Examination, students must be in the eighth grade or higher and have successfully completed three years of studies in the Modern Greek language.
The students who successfully pass the Examination may fulfill the foreign language requirements and earn high school or college credits in foreign language studies. In New York State, students who pursue studies in the Modern Greek language for more than two years may afford the opportunity to earn a Regents diploma with advanced designation (NYCRR §100.5[b][v][c]).
