Benefits of Student Examinations
The ABT Student Examinations enable ABT Certified Teachers to improve their teaching methods by receiving feedback from an ABT Examiner. Presenting teachers will also receive a letter stating whether they have successfully achieved or maintained their Affiliate Teacher status.
Affiliate Teachers who present students for three consecutive successful sessions of exams will achieve the level of distinction of ABT NTC Fellow. Explore the current list of ABT NTC Affiliate Teachers and ABT NTC Fellows below.
Further, to earn eligibility to participate in the highest level of the ABT NTC Teacher Training Intensives (Level 6, 7, and Partnering), ABT NTC Level 5 Certified Teachers are required to successfully present their students for exams.
ABT Student Examinations benefit students by serving as a skill assessment to document students’ progress, build their confidence, and improve their training. Each participating student receives an individual rubric outlining his/her proficiency both technically and artistically with comments from the Examiner. Students who successfully pass the exam will also receive an official certificate listing the level of the examination class they took along with their level of distinction. The four levels of distinction are Pass, Pass with Merit, Pass with Honors, and Pass with High Honors.ABT Affiliate TeachersABT NTC Fellows
