The placement test is divided into three parts:

This evaluation takes the shape of an interview during which the person responsible for the evaluation will ask general questions to the student in order to determine his/her level of competence in the area of oral interaction.

2.  An evaluation of the student's written comprehension. The student will undergo an exam during which he/she will have to answer some questions that will test his/her knowledge of grammar and overall comprehension of a short text.

3.  An evaluation of the student's written production. The student will write a short text on a predetermined subject.

The student will have a limited time to undergo the placement test.

The level of competence in French as a second language is assigned following the scale of Niveaux de compétence en francaislangue seconde pour les immigrants adultes (Levels of competence in French as a second language for the adult immigrant) created by the Université de Montréal, McGill University and the Ministère des Relations avec les citoyens et de l'Immigration (Minister of Relations with the Citizens and Immigration).
