Academic Testing Procedures

The Global Discovery Laboratories administer quizzes, tests, and examinations to students through the GDL Support Center, Room 135, in the Center for Global Learning. All hard copy and digital quizzes, tests, and examinations must be signed out on the electronic system upon entry to the GDL. All hard copy testing materials must be returned to the GDL Technology and Learning Specialist upon completion. Upon completion of the quiz, test, or examination, the student must enter the time of completion using the same electronic system in the GDL Support Center.

Placement Testing

For proper placement, first-year students who wish to continue in a language they studied in high school must take a placement test in the language. The procedures for taking these tests are described in this section, and the test could take on-average fifteen to thirty minutes.
