- 4-page printable worksheet (Word + PDF);
- 4-page printable answer key (Word + PDF).
This is version A of the placement test. Some sentences in Placement Test B have been slightly changed and the answers shuffled so that you can use both versions in the same class. Both versions have 50 questions, with one point available for each correct answer. Levels are then determined by the number of points your students score. The test includes questions related to grammar and it will help you determine which level will best suit your class.
Depending on the group, you can give students 20 to 30 minutes to complete the test. Some of them will complete the test in less time and some might not be able to complete all the questions, so it’s important to let them know that it’s ok. It’s all part of the assessment. If they need more than 30 minutes, they are probably struggling a bit.
