Level test: second semester 2018-2019
In order to be assigned to a language course, students of Business English and Professional Development (mandatory language), French, German and Spanish need to take a mandatory level test that will take place during the first lesson. The test is compulsory for students who are starting to attend the above mentioned courses this semester and for those who are returning from a study abroad experience.
Please note that no certifications will be considered valid to exempt students from taking the assessment test. If issued within the last two years, students can bring a copy the day of the test in order to provide the teacher with another assessment tool.
Below students can find the calendars of the second semester 2018-2019 level tests, subdivided by Department: Department of Economics and Finance, Department of Business and Management, Department of Political Science.
The calendars are indicative as, in order to take the test, students are divided into groups. Please consult the lists - ordered by ID number - with the indication of time and classroom for the level test:
In general, we inform that:
- it is not possible to take the test on a different date/time
- it is always recommended to take the test on the fixed date in order to avoid delay for being inserted in a language group
- in case of absence, students will receive information to retake the test
Please note that the following categories of students do not have to take the level test organized by the University Language Center (CLA):
- students who have applied for the Erasmus Program 2019-2020 and will take the language tests set for the International Exchange programs. Indeed, the Erasmus tests replace CLA level tests in order to insert a student in a language group and students cannot take both;
- Master’s Degree students who – during their Bachelor’s Degree program at LUISS – have already attended courses of the mandatory/optional language chosen. In these cases, indeed, level attained during their three-year program will be considered in order to insert them in the course
- students enrolled in a language course of Arabic, Chinese, Portuguese and Russian. In this case students returning from abroad will be placed into groups based on the level they should have attended before their departure. If needed, the teacher will then have the opportunity to move the student to a more suitable class.
- students enrolled in the third year of Political Science who are returning from a study abroad experience and that will be inserted in the groups of their second mandatory language based on the level they should have attended before their departure. If needed, the teacher will then have the opportunity to move the student to a more suitable class.
