Introduction: The National Greek Exam is an annual assessment administered by the American Classical League (ACL) to students in the United States who are studying Ancient Greek. The exam is designed to assess students’ knowledge of the grammar, vocabulary, and syntax of the Greek language, as well as their ability to read and translate passages from Greek literature. It is typically taken by high school students who are enrolled in a Greek course, but it is open to students at all levels of study. The exam is graded on a scale from 1 to 5, with 1 being the lowest and 5 being the highest. The National Greek Exam is one of several exams offered by the ACL to promote the study of classical languages and cultures in American schools.
