Students receive a copy of their class schedule during ESO once the placement tests have been completed. Students are encouraged to meet with the ELI Coordinator or the Operations Support Specialist if they have any questions. Below are descriptions of academic workshops and activities.
The Class Policy Workshop helps the new students learn what it means to be a good student at the ELI and to have good study habits. The following topics are covered.
The ESO Coordinator meets with each new student at the end of ESO to give them their placement scores, check their ESO passport stamps, and answer any questions the student has.
What does it mean to take a placement test? It means we would analyze your scores to determine the best fit for a new student within our class levels. All new ELI students are required to take placement tests during ELI Student Orientation. The English test scores are converted to levels or grade equivalents and then averaged to determine a potential placement into a level of English as Second Language class. Descriptions of the five placement tests are listed below.
