German Placement: Cutoff Scores and Placement Messages for 2017-2018
Placement into the German courses is based on the student's score on the German Placement Exam. Cutoff scores and placement recommendations are derived in collaboration with the Department of Germanic Languages and Literatures and are reviewed annually. The policies below apply to all students entering Illinois in Summer 2017, Fall 2017, or Spring 2018.
The online German Placement Exam does not award proficiency credit. Only students who do well on the placement test may attempt the proficiency exam. You will need to have earned a score of at least 63 (63%) to qualify. Click here to learn more about the paper-and-pencil German Proficiency Exam.
