Foreign Language Placement Exam

Welcome! ¡Bienvenidos! Herzlich Willkommen! On behalf of the foreign language faculty of Wisconsin Lutheran College, we congratulate you on becoming a WLC student. To determine your foreign language ability, we are offering a user-friendly online placement test.

Check with your admissions counselor to see if you will need to take the placement exam. Your counselor will then contact the correct foreign language department, and a professor from that department will send you a link to the exam via your WLC email address.

The Webcape Placement Exam is designed to evaluate your language skill level in order to place you into the correct course. This exam can be taken anywhere that has internet access - at home, at the public library, or on the WLC campus. Please allow 45 minutes to complete the exam, although for most people it will not take more than 30 minutes. You must complete the test in one sitting; you will not be able to save and finish later.

After completing the exam, an email will be sent to the WLC language faculty automatically and your score will be recorded. The faculty will then determine, with the help of the Registrar, in which course to place you.

We encourage you to take this exam as soon as possible. This will give us a better indication of your current language ability and allows you to make any needed adjustments to your fall schedule in advance. If you have any questions regarding the placement test or the Spanish major or German course, please feel free to email us.
