Our Noncredit ESL Placement Test is designed for non-native English speakers, testing their skills in basic English writing. Students will be given a picture prompt and will have 30 minutes to write as much as they can about what is happening in the picture. After taking the test, students will know their current English writing level and can enroll in a Noncredit ESL course. All Noncredit ESL courses are free.
