Placement tests

Placement tests are the basis of Linguapop. They are used to assess the language skills of your candidates.

The final result of every placement test is a candidate's rating, which translates to a level according to the CEFR.

In the placement tests sidebar menu, you will find all placement tests under your organization.

By clicking on a placement test, you will open the placement test details screen:

If a placement test is completed, the candidate's rating and final CEFR Level will be displayed, alongside a graphical representation of their placement.

The candidate's CEFR level is based on their use-of-language skills.

If you also tested a candidate's reading and listening skills, a score (out of 5) will be displayed next to Reading and Listening. This is the number of correct answers your candidate answered.

Reading and Listening excersises are given to candidates based on their assessed CEFR level, and should be used to further determine where to place the candidate.

You can use the graph together with the results of the Reading and Listening excercises to get a good picture of which level your candidate belongs to.
