Language Placement Tests

French, German & Spanish Require Online Placement Test Scores

Prerequisite placement tests are used to assess incoming student levels of language ability, to better advise them which courses to take and to assist in class level placement. The placement tests are designed to assess student proficiency in grammar, vocabulary and reading comprehension. Placement tests ordinarily take 20 to 30 minutes. It is recommended to print your scores and keep the print for appropriate placement until you have attended your first class.
