Placement Test/Test de placement

To retain your place in the course for which you have or would like to register, you are required to take a placement test. This will ensure that you are registered in the appropriate French course.  Please note that you will  be required to show proof of having taken the test on the first day of classes. To do so, click on the following link: https://moodle.queensu.ca/login/index.php

This test has an audio component. To hear this component, "Adobe Flash Player" is required. Please ensure that your computer volume is not muted.

Once you are on the Moodle page,

  • Login with your NetID and password, at the bottom of this page you'll see "You are not logged in (Login)", press on (Login).
  • When you are logged in, search for “French Placement 2013” in the 2012-13 Academic Courses list at the bottom of the page. Do not use the search box in the blue Queen’s navigation bar at the top of the page.
  • Click on “French Placement 2013”.
  • Click on the “Enrol me” button.
  • You will now be able to take the test by clicking on “French Placement Test”.

This test has 107 questions. 100 of these will be marked. 7 of these are examples and will not be marked. You have 1 hour and 1 attempt to complete the test. To have enough time to complete the test, it is important that you pace yourself accordingly. Once your hour is up, there will be no opportunity to revise or redo a question or part of the test.

* Never press on the button "Unenrol me from" the French Placement, because you will not be allowed to redo the test.

You may complete the test at any time at your convenience. However, doing the test as soon as possible will help ensure that you are registered in the appropriate course.

To finish the test: After clicking “Next” on the last question of the test, scroll down and click “Submit all and finish”. This will take you to a page that will have your name, your overall score (out of 100), and your overall feedback (See Advisor, FREN-P11, FREN-P12, FREN-100, FREN-110, FREN-110 or Year 2). You are required to print this page and present it to your instructor on the first day of classes. Providing this page will ensure that you are registered in the appropriate class.

If you have taken this test before registering for any French course, register for the course that the feedback recommends. Please note, “See Advisor” means to contact the Department of French Studies.

If you have taken this test after registering for a French course, and the course you have registered for is the same as the feedback has provided, stay registered in this course.

If you have taken this test after registering for a French course, and the test provides you with feedback that is different from the course for which you have already registered, drop the course you are in, and add the course from the feedback of your placement test.
