Placement tests

  • In the beginning of studies, you will take independently a Swedish and/or English placement test in Moodle.
  • Log in to Moodle with your SAMK identification and find your group’s placement test. The password for the test is the group code, e.g. NLT20SP1, which you received from the teacher tutor.
  • Take the placement test by the announced deadline (in autumn term 6 Sept. 2020).
  • You can take each test only once. You have 90 minutes per test.
  • The total score is 100. You pass with a minimum of 50 points.
  • Do not use any assistive device (e.g. dictionaries). In this way you will have reliable information on your language skills. This is important considering your future language studies.
  • Placement tests are not obligatory for students who have passed the English and/or Swedish studies belonging to the degree in another higher education institution/university.
  • If necessary, based on the results, you will be directed to Preparatory studies, which belong to the elective studies.

Language tutors at SAMK

Language tutors are SAMK language teachers who support and instruct you with issues concerning language and communication studies.
