A language placement test is an entry level test usually conducted by educational institution to determine the level of students before enrolling in relevant courses and/or degree programs. Placement tests, unlike admission tests, are NOT pass/fail, but function as a standardized tool to enable educators and administrators to place a student in classes suitable for their language level.
The Syrian Private University uses the Oxford Online Placement Test as a tool of language placement.
There are various definitions for language levels, their instructional input and their Intended Learning Outcomes (ILO’s). The most universally recognized definition is the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages, often abbreviated as (CEFR) or (CEF). Most publishers of language instructional materials today use this framework and adapt their books to its definitions.
