Placement Services

We offer a range of options to help language programs place students quickly, efficiently, and economically. We are aware that many programs have different approaches to placement. That’s why we work with you to customize placement testing to meet your needs.

Some of the key advantages of iTEP placement services include:

  • Automated and immediate scoring for grammar, listening and reading
  • Speaking and Writing scored by your team or by our highly trained graders
  • View students responses to speaking and writing
  • Ability to archive and retrieve scores

We recognize that every English Language Program has unique placement needs. We invite you to contact us at douglasronson (at) for a free consultation about how you can best take advantage of iTEP for placement.

Measuring Student Progress

iTEP products are useful beyond placement testing. We can help you to measure student progress, establish appropriate outcome objectives, and compare results to classroom grades and other assessment tools.

Program directors who use iTEP for placement quickly realize the advantages of using the same test for determining student progress and assessing proficiency.

Students appreciate the detailed score reports that provide information on specific sub-skill areas. These help students to understand their strengths and to focus on their linguistic weaknesses.
