Avant Placement™

Printer-friendly version



"When students are placed correctly, they learn more and tend not to be bored in class. And
because taking Avant’s Placement tests is not a painful process, students have a positive
impression of the Multimedia Language Center and come back

-Alysha Timmons, Director of Multimedia Language Center, Cal State San Bernardino



Avant Placement™ is an initial measurement of real-world language ability in Reading, Writing and Speaking. Used to inform appropriate placement for students in middle school, high school and college, Avant Placement tests can be completed quickly and are web-based for anytime, anywhere accessibility.

Avant Placement assessments:

  • Engage students with everyday situations in which skills are likely to be used.
  • Measure proficiency in Arabic, Chinese (Traditional and Simplified), French, German, Italian, Japanese or Spanish.*
  • Are externally scored, with Writing and Speaking scored by certified raters.
  • Report scores for groups and individuals, with results available within 3-5 business days. Educators have access to students' Writing and Speaking samples, and reports are exportable to Excel for flexible analysis.

*French, German, Japanese and Spanish also have a Contextualized Grammar component, and Arabic is available for Writing and Speaking.
