UW System Placement Testing
In higher education, placement testing is a part of the instructional process. It helps place students into the most appropriate course within a given sequence of instruction. Students are placed into courses where their prerequisite skills, as measured by the placement tests, fit those necessary for that course—maximizing their success in learning that subject. Students take Wisconsin placements tests in English, math, and foreign languages.
The University of Wisconsin Center for Placement Testing administers the Regional Placement Testing Program each spring.
