Placement Testing Might Save You Time and Money

by South University
April 25, 2012

Did you know that taking a placement test could potentially save you money and time by allowing you to complete your degree faster? Placement Tests like those offered at South University Online Programs measures students’ knowledge and skills in certain subject areas before their academic schedule is determined.

If students receive sufficient scores on the Placement Tests, they might qualify to receive an exemption for a course, such as introductory math, thus reducing the time and money spent on the path to graduation.

Besides the benefits described above, Placement Tests can also serve to be beneficial to students in other ways, including:

  • Placement Tests are a great way to get “back in the habit” of going to school.
  • Placement Tests allow you to familiarize yourself with the user-friendly online classroom environment that you will use for all of your classes.

The tests are usually only 25 – 50 questions and the results at South University are automatically reported the school’s student information system, which can automatically update student schedules. There is no need to request scores to be sent to your school. All you have to do is enter the classroom and complete the tests!
