Established in 1985, the NIE is the official national language contest for middle and high school students of the American Association of Teachers of Italian. It is a web-based proficiency and performance assessment that measures written and aural interpretation skills in alignment with the ACTFL Performance Descriptors and the 2012 ACTFL Proficiency Guidelines.  The mission of the NIE is to provide:
- an opportunity for the visibility and the promotion of Italian programs in North American schools;
- an assessment tool that can be used by teachers and students as a diagnostic feedback;
- a measurement of language skills that can constitute a positive washback to help inform high school instruction and curricula.
The NIE can be used to support students in preparation for the official exams of Seal of Biliteracy, the SAT II, and it can make them 
eligible for the Società Onoraria Italica scholarships.
