Proficiency Tests

  • Students who have taken French, Spanish, and German in High School must sign up for a specific date and time to take their language proficiency test with Mrs. Marisa Knox mk52@evansville.edu. The Blackboard link will NOT work until students SIGN UP. Latin proficiency tests are not online. Students who wish to take the Latin proficiency test must email Dr. Alan Kaiser ak58@evansville.edu.
  • Placement scores will only count one year. After this time, students must ask the permission of the Department Chair to retake the placement test.
  • Students who have received a 4 or a 5 on a French, Spanish, and German AP test will place into French, Spanish, or German 311. Students who get a 4 or a 5 on both the Spanish Literature AP test and the Spanish AP test will place into Spanish 311 and get 3 UE elective credits (not Spanish course credit).
  • Students who believe they have not been placed at the appropriate level should contact the foreign languages department.
