The Confucius Institute at the University of Latvia’s March 2023 Chinese Proficiency Test home-based online test was successfully launched

At 2:00 pm on Saturday, March 11, 2023, Beijing time, Latvia’s 2023 second Chinese Proficiency Test (HSK for short) and Chinese Proficiency Speaking Test (HSKK for short) home-based online test officially began. It lasted nine hours and ended at 10 pm Beijing time. One point over. Candidates who participated in this test included ten people from HSK1-6, and seven people from elementary to advanced HSKK. Five exams were organized respectively. The first one was HSK level two, four and six; ; HSK Level 1, Level 3, Level 5 is the third session, HSKK Elementary is the fourth session, and HSKK Advanced is the fifth session. The test adheres to the principle of fairness, impartiality and openness. The invigilator supervises the test through the zoom conference platform, and the test takers answer the questions through the test client provided by Chinese Test International and capture real-time photos.

During the exam preparation stage, Shang Quanyu, the Chinese director of the Confucius Institute at the University of Latvia, actively organized all invigilators to participate in the invigilation training. On March 1, 2023, the invigilator participated in the invigilation training organized by Chinese Test International, and had a detailed and comprehensive understanding of the content of the examination work. For this exam, teacher Bai Bingyu is arranged to be the chief examiner, and teacher Gao Anna is to be the interpreter. The invigilators are allocated reasonably, the pre-test planning is improved, and the invigilators are led by the HSK test client and the zoom conference platform on March 4, 2023 by referring to the past invigilation experience. Intensive simulations are organized for candidates. Candidates who participated in the simulation successfully completed the placement of the test seats and became familiar with the relevant rules and procedures of the online test.

The test process strictly follows the “Chinese Test Management Manual” to ensure the specialization and standardization of the test process. All the invigilators take responsibility, are serious and responsible, and conduct standardized operations in strict accordance with the requirements of the Chinese Test International. They communicated effectively with candidates, verified the identity information of candidates, read out the test instructions, proctored the whole test through the Chinese test system, arranged make-up exams for candidates with network abnormalities, and recorded the test results in a timely manner. The Chinese director inspects the examination rooms at all levels and strictly enforces the discipline of the examination room. The whole exam is strictly regulated and orderly, carefully handles all details, overcomes the technical difficulties of online invigilation, and finally ensures that all candidates can answer the questions and hand in the papers smoothly.

In the post-epidemic era, the Confucius Institute at the University of Latvia will continue to promote the Chinese proficiency test, commit to the combination of testing and teaching, innovate in practice, and strive to provide better Chinese proficiency test services for Latvian Chinese learners. The love of Chinese learners for Chinese is the driving force for our international Chinese teachers. In the future, the Confucius Institute will continue to provide students with better Chinese courses. Finally, I wish all the candidates all the best in this HSK test.
