Registering For and Taking Placement Exams

UW-Eau Claire will host online placement exams in Math (Test A), English, and World Language (French, German, Spanish) for students who are admitted for the Fall 2023 semester. You can now sign up for and take these exams at the Center for Placement Testing website.

  • Be sure to sign up for 'Test A' (the online option) for Math: You will have options to choose from Test A or Test B when registering. Be sure to choose Test A for UW-Eau Claire when selecting your Math exam. If you are also considering attending another UW institution, see the note below.
  • Requirement Note: Math and English exams are required of all students regardless of prior coursework, and if you've taken two or more years of a world language, that exam is also required. You will be taking the tests online, unproctored, and at your own convenience. It is crucial that you complete your exams before your advising + registration appointment during orientation.
  • Special Accommodations - do not register online: If you request to take the placement tests under non-standard conditions due to a disability, please do not sign up online. Instead, go to UW Center for Placement Testing and follow the instructions to email your information to Tim O'Connor and begin the accommodation process.

IMPORTANT: If you have also been admitted to or are considering another UW System institution, please check that specific campus website for test recommendations, as they could differ slightly. If you do not have access to a computer/internet, accommodations can be made for paper/pencil testing on campus.  


Once in the site, you will need to log in with your UWEC 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 exams, 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 for tests to be scored and sent to UW-Eau Claire. Because you'll be participating in orientation, we encourage you to take your online placement exams at least 2 weeks prior to your scheduled advising + registration appointment, so you can be well prepared for your meeting and to select classes.


As a reminder, all students should take the English test and the Math test (Test A). If you have had two years or more of high school French, German or Spanish, take the appropriate placement exam for that language as well.

We also offer these additional placement exams for interested students:

  • Japanese and Chinese Placement exams are available through Canvas, our online learning portal. Students will need to e-mail to request access to either course to complete these exams.
  • Students will need to complete an eform to request an American Sign Language (ASL) placement exam with our CSD department. 

A testing fee will appear on your tuition bill in the fall. This covers costs that UW-Eau Claire is required to pay to the Center for Placement Testing to facilitate placement exams for our institution.
