What is placement testing?
Placement testing is for students who have prior coding experience and would like to skip a particular class in our structured program. Placement tests are only available for the first 3 classes in each of our programs.
How does it work?
- Sign up for the test you would like your child to complete.
- A link to the test will be emailed to you.
- Please set aside 30 – 60 minutes of time in a quiet environment for your student to complete and submit the test.
- The test will be scored and reviewed by our grading team within 2 business days.
- We will email your student’s placement results and a recommendation along with a list of upcoming class start dates for your child.
