New International program at a Community College- how to assess English proficiency and place in classes

Hello,

 

 I am part of a new International Department at our Community College and I need to determine how to assess the proficiency level of new International Students.  Or college uses COMPASS as the admission test, so if an International Student can pass this test, they will start in college level classes.  The ESL program for pre-college part-time students uses CASAS.   

 

What language assessments programs are you aware of?  How do you place new International Students in classes on your campus?

 

Thank you,

Amy Pang
