Online Placement Exam Announcement and Info Page

 All first-year students are expected to take placement tests in math and foreign language; some may wish to take optional tests in biology, chemistry, or calculus. Placement tests allow academic advisors to recommend the appropriate initial course for the student in these subject areas.

Placement tests for the following eight languages are available only online: Chinese, French, German, Hebrew, Italian, Japanese, Latin, and Spanish. These tests must be taken online before students come to campus. For placement tests in languages other than these, please contact the appropriate academic department or ask your advisor when you come to campus.

In addition, a math placement exam is also available online, and must be taken before coming to campus.

There is an IU Bloomington Online Placement Exam fee of $50and it covers math and foreign language online placement exams. The fee will be assessed and appear on a student’s bursar bill the first time a student takes an online placement exam and it will cover any additional such exams taken for the academic year.

QuizSite and Post’Em (BEST version) will be retired.

QuizSite and Post’Em (BEST version) will be retired on July 1, 2013.

During the past year, we have experienced numerous technical issues with QuizSite and BEST Post’Em as the IU Web environment has evolved. Because of their age and the availability of more robust contemporary tools for Web-based testing and grade posting, it is no longer feasible for BEST to maintain these programs.

Instructors who would like assistance in transitioning to other tools are welcome to contact us at best@indiana.edu.

We appreciate your support over the years and hope that this change does not inconvenience you too greatly.

QuizSite student access outages ( updated )

Some QuizSite users have reported problems accessing the student site. We are investigating the issue and hope to have the program operational soon. However, users are reminded that QuizSite is a legacy application. We are no longer able to invest significant resources in its maintenance, and all QuizSite users are strongly encouraged to migrate to the Oncourse Test and Survey tool. ( update ) As of October 1st the student access to QuizSite is back up. But for reasons unknown to us yet, it could become unavailable without warning. We continue to investigate.
