SAT® II: Subject Tests in Foreign Languages--Using the Tests for Admission and Placement. Research Summary RS-07
College Entrance Examination Board
As an admissions test, the SAT II: Subject Tests in foreign languages allow students to demonstrate academic competence in the selected language area. As a placement tool, the SAT II: Subject Tests in foreign languages serve the same function as the SAT II: Subject Tests do in other academic areas such as world history, chemistry, or math. SAT II: Subject Tests also provide college faculty with a superior placement tool without using faculty time to develop, administer, or score the tests. Issues regarding the tests include test difficulty, test content, selection of test titles, and assessing students who are native speakers of the language.
