Placement Testing

Placement Testing for Current and Incoming Students

In continued response to COVID-19 guidelines, the Center for Placement Testing continues to use online, not proctored placement tests. In-person offerings at UW-Eau Claire will be determined on an individual basis.

If you are an incoming Blugold for the Fall 2021 semester, please see the appropriate page below for information on placement testing ahead of your Orientation experience. All students are required to take placement tests.

IN-PERSON EXAMS (for current students)

UW-Eau Claire is offering paper-based regional placement tests for current students on a limited basis in the areas of Math, English, and World Languages (French, German and Spanish). On-campus in-person testing opportunities for current students will be made available closer to Fall Registration (in spring 2021). Consult with your academic advisor to determine if you should take these tests.  Please continue to monitor communications from campus for updates to placement testing requirements and deadlines.

Placement tests will be given standard time. If you need accommodations, contact


Our online tests are not proctored. We strongly recommend that you register for these exams using your UWEC email account, and you can do so here

You will need to log in with your campus credentials to complete the registration form before taking the exam. Within two business days of registering (but more likely within a few minutes), you will receive an email from Scantron with a username and password for accessing the exams. 

  • To take the tests, your web browser must be able to accept cookies, JavaScript, and pop-up windows. We recommend you use the most up-to-date version of your web browser. If you leave or log out of a test before finishing, you may log back in and the system will remember how much time was remaining.
  • Upon completing a test, you must submit the exam in order for us to receive your scores. If you forget to submit your exam, you should be able to log back into the system to submit.

Please note: It takes about one week for tests to be scored and sent to UW-Eau Claire. We highly recommend that you take them as soon as you can.
