An online skills assessment is mandatory for all students planning to continue in a language they have previously studied.
The foreign language skills assessment is an online computer proficiency assessment. The assessment is available in Chinese, French, German, and Spanish*. You may take the test in more than one language and up to two times per language. Your most recent score will be the one used by your Academic Advisor when suggesting course recommendations. You must complete this assessment 1 week prior to attending SLU 101.
Keep in mind that the computer assessment does not fully measure your actual competency. The final placement recommendation may be higher or lower than the score obtained on the computer results.
To take the online assessment, please follow the instructions below:
