Placement Testing

All incoming students are required to take the UW System Placement Tests for English and math to help ensure enrollment into the proper courses at Orientation this summer. We strongly recommend taking a proctored math test by selecting the "Math B" option within the UW System registration process

You may also submit official Advance Placement (AP), International Baccalaureate (IB) or College Level Examination Program (CLEP) scores or official college transcripts with qualifying English or math transfer credits that may exempt you from needing to take the placement tests. If official test scores or transfer credits won't be available before your June Orientation date, you'll still need to complete the placement tests. Please use this tool to find out which placement tests you should complete prior to filling out the UW System registration form. 

The UW System Placement Tests are a required step in your enrollment at UWRF. These test your abilities in math, English and if desired, world language. As your adviser assists you in registering for courses during Orientation, they rely on your test scores to place you in the appropriate course level. Placement test results are needed prior to Orientation for you to register for math and English courses.

UW System Placement Tests will be offered in a hybrid format to ensure accessibility for everyone if students are unable to attend an in-person math testing date (Math B option). English and world language tests are being offered online only and students can take them on their own time prior to Orientation via the Meazure Learning testing link that will be emailed after completing the registration form on the UW System website

PLEASE NOTE: Students do not need to take both the Math A and Math B test. You'll select only one of these options. Math A is the online, unproctored version of the test while Math B is the proctored version where students may select an in-person testing site or can choose to pay a fee to Meazure Learning to take the test online in a proctored setting. We prefer that UWRF students take the in-person Math B option if possible.

It's preferred that students complete their math placement tests at an in-person, proctored site (Math B) through one of the Regional Testing Dates. These dates and locations are available within the UW System registration form once you click on the Math B option in the email you'll receive from Meazure Learning. If you're unable to attend one of the in-person testing dates, you'll be able to register to take your math placement test unproctored and online (Math A option), similar to how you'll take the English and/or world language placement tests.

You'll want to take your placement tests as early as you can once registration is live. This ensures that we have your scores on file and prepared for your adviser during your selected Orientation date in June. There will be in-person testing dates (math only) that you'll be able to select from when you choose the Math B option in the Meazure Learning email you'll receive from UW System after completing the UW System registration form. You'll receive the link to take the English and/or World Language tests in the Meazure Learning email as well once you submit the UW registration form. Those tests should be taken online as soon as you are able to complete them. 

There are several other Regional Placement Testing dates and sites that may be closer and will work better for you. If you're looking to come to campus to take your math placement test, you can register for April 29 in the UW registration form and visit us!
