Placement Testing for Current and Incoming Students

The Center for Placement Testing continues to offer online, unproctored placement exams. In-person placement exams are available to current students at UW-Eau Claire.


If you are an incoming Blugold for the fall semester, please see the appropriate page below for information on placement testing ahead of orientation. Incoming students are required to take placement exams.

In-person exams (recommended for current students)

UW-Eau Claire offers paper-based placement tests for current students in the areas of Math, English, and World Languages (French, German and Spanish). If interested in taking a placement exam on campus, students should use their Navigate app to schedule an individual testing session. Consult with your academic advisor to determine if you should take these tests before signing up to take an exam.

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

Online exams

Our online exams are not proctored. You can register for these exams using your UWEC email account, at the Center for Placement Testing website. **It is recommended that current students take the in-person exam.

Once in the site, 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 Meazure Learning with a username and password for accessing the exams. 

  • To take the exam, 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 an exam before finishing, you may log back in and the system will remember how much time was remaining.
  • Upon completing an exam, you must submit it 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 at least one week (sometimes two weeks) for tests to be scored and sent to UW-Eau Claire, therefore we highly recommend that you take them as soon as you can.
