The purpose of this test is to assist the English faculty in placing you in an English class which will best meet your needs and insure your success here at Wentworth Institute of Technology. Students who do exceptionally well will be given the opportunity to participate in a special English Honors program, and Honors placement will be reflected on their transcripts.
It is important that the work on this test is your own and that you are properly placed into the English course that best meets yours needs. If you are not properly placed into the appropriate English course, you may find the work too overwhelming or difficult. As you know, failing English will affect your course sequence as your academic progress.
