Language Institute ... Placement Testing

Columbus State Skill Devlopment Center Language Courses

The Basic English Placement Test determines the Basic English course level in which students should begin. The test has two parts: a listening skills assessment and an assessment of knowledge of grammar, vocabulary and reading level. The test takes approximately two hours to complete, and students will have their results at the end of the test. It is not necessary to have an appointment. The test lasts about two hours.
