The Success Placement Test

is designed to help the teacher
to place students at the right level
of the Success series.

It contains 100 Multiple Choice

questions and is designed
to last for an hour.

If students get less than 60% of the

answers right, they should use Success
Elementary. If they get more than 70%
of the answers right, they should use
Success Pre-Intermediate. 60-70% of
right answers puts students in the
middle of the two levels and your
decision as to where to place these
students should depend on the level
of the rest of the class.
