Hello colleagues, As programs seek to support adult learners to transition to post-secondary, the application process often includes passing a placement test. What placement tests are used by the post-secondary institutions in your area? In my area the Test of Essential Academic Skills (TEAS) is used by the career and tech school that offers LPN training. Some schools require COMPASS while others require Accuplacer. I know many schools require the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) for English learners.
Is your program involved in supporting students to pass placement tests? What have you learned about effective practices? What challenges have you and students faced?
Thanks for anything you can report.
Cheers, Susan Finn Miller
