Case Studies in Foreign Language Placement: Practices and Possibilities
Hudson, T., Ed.; Clark, M., Ed.
National Foreign Language Resource Center at University of Hawaii
Although most language programs make placement decisions on the basis of placement tests, there is surprisingly little published about different contexts and systems of placement testing. The present volume contains case studies of placement programs in foreign language programs at the tertiary level across the United States. The different programs span the spectrum from large programs servicing hundreds of students annually to small language programs with very few students. The contributions to this volume address such issues as how the size of the program, presence or absence of heritage learners, and population changes affect language placement decisions.
