Yeshiva Learning Experience, Inc., Jerusalem, Israel.
Proficiency examination program administered at the testing center of Yeshiva Learning Experience, Inc.
Instructional delivery format:
After completing the proficiency examination, students will be able to: demonstrate a command of Mishnaic Hebrew; identify the primary character traits and ethical lessons being emphasized in each Mishna; understand the ideas of the Mishna in the light of later commentaries; apply the axioms from Pirkei Avos to modern day issues; and display the ability to derive an ethical decision based upon the wisdom of the Sages and identify the source.
The proficiency examination process is intended to measure a body of knowledge that students have acquired through other learning experiences. Each examination is administered under secure and proctored conditions. The exam covers the first three chapters of Ethics of the Fathers and selected commentaries specifically focusing on the ideas of building an ideal society, individual growth, and the fear and love of God.
