The Bee's Online Testing Platform is Here
The new online testing platform gives school spelling bee coordinators, teachers and sponsors maximum flexibility in the administration of local spelling bee programs. As teachers deliver classroom instruction, manage remote learning or provide a combination of the two, they can offer a traditional oral spelling bee or use the new online testing platform to administer a virtual spelling and/or vocabulary test.
Teachers, get started in the online testing platform today by enrolling your school and logging in to your school's account.
Are you R-E-A-D-Y?
Beginning October 15, the online testing platform is available for registration and test administration. There is also a Sample Test that you and your students can take to become more comfortable using the platform.
