PROFICIENCY EXAMINATIONS IN FRENCH AT THE UNIVERSITY OF MICHIGAN RESIDENTIAL COLLEGE.
BOSWORTH, LEWIS A.
THE PLACEMENT BATTERY CONSISTS OF TWO TESTS FROM THE COLLEGE ENTRANCE EXAMINATION BOARD (READING AND LISTENING), A GRAMMAR PROFICIENCY TEST, AND AN ORAL INTERVIEW. FRESHMEN WHO SCORE WITHIN A CERTAIN RANGE ON THESE TESTS ARE PLACED IN SECOND YEAR INTENSIVE FRENCH (TWO CLASS PERIODS A DAY). PREREQUISITE FOR THE THIRD YEAR COURSE IS NOT THE COMPLETION OF ELEMENTARY COURSES, BUT PROFICIENCY, AS REFLECTED IN A HIGHER RANGE OF SCORES ON THE PRECEDING TESTS. SECOND YEAR STUDENTS WHO HAVE DONE WELL MAY TAKE THE PROFICIENCY BATTERY AT MIDSEMESTER. IF THEY PASS, THEY ENTER THE SECOND HALF OF THE THIRD-YEAR COURSE, AND USE THEIR ADDITIONAL TIME (THE THIRD-YEAR COURSE MEETS ONLY ONCE DAILY) TO MAKE UP THE FIRST SEMESTER'S WORK ON A TUTORIAL BASIS. THIS ARTICLE APPEARED IN "THE FOREIGN LANGUAGE COURIER," NUMBER 39, JANUARY 1968, PAGES 19-22. (AF)
