The Japanese-Language Proficiency Test (JLPT) is a standardized criterion-referenced test to evaluate and certify Japanese language proficiency for non-native speakers. The test covers language knowledge, reading ability, and listening ability. The assessment is held twice a year in Japan and in selected countries (on the first Sunday of July and December), and once a year in other regions (on the first Sunday of December). In December 2017, there were 560,704 examinees at 226 cities, in 76 countries throughout the world. The JLPT consists of five levels: N1, N2, N3, N4, and N5, with N1 being the highest level and N5 the lowest. Each level consists of a reading and listening component.

These are raw scores that are not directly used to determine passing, nor are they reported, except in rough form in the "Reference Information" section. Raw scores are converted to a standard...
Reserve Bank of New Zealand, Wellington
The Monetary Policy Challenge (MPC) provides New Zealand secondary school students an exciting opportunity to put themselves in the shoes of Reserve Bank economists and recommend what the Official Cash Rate could be. Operating with the same information as the Reserve Bank, numerous teams assess the economic conditions facing New Zealand and the outlook for inflation. Based upon their own assessment of the economy, each team decides on an appropriate setting for the Official Cash Rate. The Monetary Policy Challenge links to NCEA achievement standard: Economics 3.5 (AS 91403). The Reserve Bank reviews the Official Cash Rate eight times a year and also issues Monetary Policy Statements four times a year. Students partaking in the Monetary Policy Challenge consider the same information as Reserve Bank economists. They will also recommend whether the Official Cash Rate should go up, down, or remain the same. Each team's presentation should demonstrate a comprehensive understanding of...
