What are placement tests and where can I take them? Why are they needed?

Placement tests help us assess a student’s writing and math skills so they can be placed into appropriate classes for their success.  There are different ways to acquire your placement tests.  CWI accepts College Level Examination Program (CLEP); Advanced Placement (AP); SAT and ACT, and previous college courses.    CWI offers free Math Diagnostic and Write Class Placement assessments to students who have applied to CWI and paid the one-time application fee!  View Assessment Services for more information on testing and Assessment center hours.
