If you are a CT public school teacher and plan to sign up for the online test, please ensure that you are in compliance with the CT Student Data Privacy Law by following these directions:

- For the online test, just order the quantity of tests you need for each level. Do not put student names on the order form. You will receive a list of generic names that are not identifiable (Student 12345, Student 22345, etc).

-When students take the test, they will use their auto-generated generic names, not their real names. If they do enter their actual names unintentionally, please contact Lisa Narug (director@frenchcontest.org) for help. 

- Please note that AATF National will not be collecting or housing any personal data of the students who are registered in this manner.

**If you require the Grand Concours as part of students' grades or the school curriculum, please sign up for the paper test.
