Stratford Language Institute requires all newly enrolled students to take the M-EPT (Michigan English Placement Test) free of charge prior to initial registration. You will need to make an appointment at least one week in advance to the course start date to take the placement test in the SLI office as well as completing a writing sample in order for us to assure that you are placed in the best course for your current English level. Your score will be assessed and you will be placed into your beginning course based on the chart below:
|Level 1||5-14||Low A1|
|Level 2||15-30||High A1|
|Level 4||39-45||Low B1|
|Level 5||46-52||High B1|
The Michigan English Placement Test (Michigan-EPT) is a computer-based placement and progress test. Institutions have successfully used the Michigan-EPT since 1973 to quickly and reliably place students into homogeneous ability levels (CEFR level A1-C1). This 60-minute test assesses language proficiency by measuring performance in listening comprehension, grammar, vocabulary, and reading comprehension.
