What is a placement exam?
At McDaniel College, we use placement exams to help determine the best level for you to begin your academic coursework (unless you've already completed transferable courses in these areas.) These are tests that are used to measure where you are right now. It’s important you take them seriously, but don’t feel pressure to study or prepare too much. Basically, we want a snapshot of where you are so we know where you should start.
We offer three placement tests and you’ll determine which ones you need to take based on what you plan to study. You do not have to take all of the Placement Exams at one time (in fact, we wouldn’t recommend it) but they should all be completed as soon as possible.
