The Evaluación Nacional del Logro Académico en Centros Escolares (ENLACE) is the National exam every student in public and private school takes in Mexico. It is a test designed to obtain additional information on education in Mexico in the areas of Math, Science and Spanish for students in 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 9th, and 12th grades.
This exam is not the type a student will pass or fail. The main goal is to reinforce and optimize the abilities and knowledge of our children, so their highest potential is met.
ENLACE is an additional tool for the teachers, administration, students and educational authorities from the country to know the actual evolution of education in all the levels: in the state, in the city, in the neighborhood, by group and by student.
The government of Mexico has done a good job explaining what ENLACE is, and how it is administered and monitored across the country.
