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). Click on each test to learn more.
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.
