• Placement is designed specifically to measure language proficiency. It employs a part adaptive method. Part of the test uses an adaptive algorithm which takes a learner’s answers to a previous question to select the most suitable question to present next. Placement selects these items from a large item bank making each learner’s experience different. The adaptive nature of the test allows Placement to quickly and accurately estimate a learner’s English proficiency. Placement is used by school and institutions that need a quick no fuss test that measures students writing, reading, listening, vocabulary and grammar.

    The Placement test takes only 35 minutes and the results are available online within minutes of completion, allowing for quick, yet accurate, placement decisions.
