Details

The World Language Department at North Central High School has set its dates for placement exams for incoming freshmen who are not currently attending a WT middle school. If the student has outside experience in Chinese, French, German, Japanese, Latin or Spanish, and believe this experience equals more than one year of study, we encourage you to take a placement exam prior to registering for classes at North Central High School. We will be offering placement tests on the following dates:

  • Thursday, May 6, 2021 at 3:00 – 4:00pm for the Canvas portion and 4:30-5:00pm for the speaking exam*
  • Thursday, May 13, 2021 at 3:00 – 4:00pm for the Canvas portion and 4:30-5:00pm for the speaking exam*
  • Thursday, May 20, 2021 at 3:00 – 4:00pm for the Canvas portion and 4:30-5:00pm for the speaking exam*

*not all languages will incorporate a speaking exam

Placement Test Considerations

  • If the middle school world language curriculum is the equivalent of at least two full middle school years, it is recommended that these students NOT take the placement exam and enroll in level II of the respective language. Letter grades of C+ or below received in Grade 8 of the language disqualify the student for X placement/a weighted grade.
  • Families who prefer that the NCHS World Language Department determines language placement MUST schedule their sons/daughters for a placement exam. Placement exams will be given via the Canvas platform this year and virtually using Zoom.
  • The NCHS World Language Department offers six languages through level V. If a placement exam indicates level III or above, students will need to understand their four-year plan before being enrolled in III, IV, or V because it may affect their diploma or IB courses.

Students may register to take a placement test by emailing Mrs. Traci Rogers. In the correspondence, please include test date, language, and an email address for the student in order to be added to the World Language Placement Test Canvas page. You will then need to monitor your email for a response back from Mrs. Rodgers with directions on accessing Canvas and Zoom link(s) for the test date.

Parents and future NCHS Panthers, thank you so much for dedication to the learning of a World Language. We look forward to having you in our community and classrooms in the upcoming school year and beyond.
