What is Placement Testing?

Our General Education Program requires our students take various courses to develop certain skills and competencies. The mission of Placement Testing is to determine whether or not students are adequately prepared to succeed in these courses. We determine level of proficiency by testing Math and Writing (English).

The Shippensburg University Testing Center also provides an optional Reading test for students who are required to take Developmental Reading & Study Skills (RDG:050) and wish to challenge their placement in that course. Click on Reading to learn more about the Reading Challenge Test.
