ACP Personalized English Test

This test is an individualized assessment based on English skills.  The key components are a Canadian Reading Comprehension Assessment with the level determined by reading a graded word list and an informal interview with a faculty member, followed by a writing sample.  When the assessment is completed, a faculty member will discuss the results, and make a course placement decision, and provide as much support as is needed to register for the required courses.
