Placement Test Survey

NOTE REGARDING PLACEMENT TEST SURVEY

The Placement Test is NOT used to fulfill the Core Language Requirement! It is used to identify the appropriate language course for you based on your skill level.

ALL STUDENTS MUST TAKE THE PLACEMENT TEST SURVEY PRIOR TO TAKING THEIR FIRST LANGUAGE COURSE AT SCU!

A PLACEMENT RECOMMENDATION IS A PREREQUISITE FOR ALL SCU LANGUAGE COURSES. Once you have taken a language course at SCU, that course will serve as your prerequisite for further language courses.

 

INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE PLACEMENT TEST SURVEY

  1. Begin the Placement Test Survey at least 3 WEEKS PRIOR to your course registration date in order to get your placement recommendation prior to your course enrollment date (click link below after reading these instructions).

  2. If after beginning the Survey you are instructed to complete the Placement Test, BEGIN THAT TEST WITHIN 2 DAYS OF RECEIVING YOUR INSTRUCTIONS.  After completing the placement test, you will receive an email with your placement recommendation within 7-10 days.   NOTE: If the Placement Test Survey instructs you to register for Level 1 (or 1N for Spanish), you will not receive any subsequent email. You can simply enroll in that course when you are ready to take it.

    >>> Don't delay: if you wait to take the test portion, you could risk not having the placement recommendation by your course enrollment date!

If you have questions that are not addressed in these instructions, please email Maria Bauluz Due to a high volume of emails, you will not receive a response if the information you are requesting is found in these instructions.

REMEMBER: Results from the placement test will NOT satisfy the SCU Core Language Requirement. Results are only valid for identifying the most appropriate language course for you to take based on your skill level.
