駐紐約臺北經濟文化辦事處教育組於2017年3月26日在克蘭頓大學(University of Scranton)舉辦第2年的華語文能力測驗。本場次華語測驗包括「兒童華語文能力測驗」（兒測）及「華語文能力測驗」（華測）。兒測考生報名為萌芽級，華測考生分別報考華語文能力測驗為入門基礎級、進階高階級。考生為報考測驗的目除了希望透過不同程度考試的測驗，進一步了解自己的中文程度，提升學習的成效外；也有考生希望透過考試，申請臺灣華語文獎學金，為期2至9個月，體驗台灣華語文的學習環境。
斯克蘭頓大學龐安安主任表示：「自2011年起與臺灣教育部合作愉快，推動華語教學。去年第一次在賓州辦華語能力測試。今年非常感謝紐約臺北經濟文化處教育組的鼓勵及大力協助，能有三個當地學校參加華測：斯克蘭頓大學，Howard Gardner Multiple Intelligence Charter School以及斯克蘭頓中文學校。學生除藉此了解自己華語能力外，也可以對日後申請華語獎學金有很大的幫助。龐主任希望能夠透過多元化的推動方式更加激發學生對學習中文的興趣。另外，也非常感謝王詩涵，賴昭華兩位老師的辛苦教學」。
