Pearson English Placement test

Teacher Registration

School administrators will receive access codes for Placement. Teachers can create their own MyEnglishLab account and then redeem their access code. 

Teachers create a cohort for their students, which can simply be named as school term date or other method.

Teachers then supply this cohort ID to students.

Student Registration

Students can register themselves online and join the school's course using an access code from the school and the course ID.

Alternatively, schools can register students in batches so students can access the test with the username and password they receive. 

Once students have registered, they are ready to check their equipment, select their Placement test and get started.

During the test

During the test, students will see a variety of question types that measure their reading, writing, speaking, listening, grammar and vocabulary skills.

The test will last up to 40 minutes and most students will see different test questions, as it adapts to each of their abilities.

After the test

At the end of the test, students will see their results on-screen automatically and teachers will be able to view all scores in the gradebook. Students will be able to refer to their placement test in future by checking their MyEnglishLab gradebook.

Teachers can access student scores in their MyEnglishLab teacher gradebook as soon as the test is complete. Students can easily be sorted into classes if you continue using MyEnglishLab products.

Scores can also be exported as XML, Excel and MOODLE files, for easy reporting and integration.
