IELP Placement Testing

In order to find out which level is best for you, we arrange for you to take placement tests at the beginning of your first quarter in the IELP.
The first two days of the quarter are dedicated to placement testing, so it is important for you to arrive in Spokane a few days beforehand so that you will be ready to take part in all the tests.
You will be tested in four areas:
1. Reading (45 minutes / multiple-choice)
2. Listening (45 minutes / multiple-choice)
3. Speaking (30 minutes / recording your answering to a series of questions)
4. Writing (50 minutes / answering one question by writing a paragraph)
These tests do not affect your grades. Instead, they are only used to help us determine the ideal fit for your language ability. Starting at the right level is key for your success.
The best preparation is to be on time and do your best!
