Continuous Testing Experience: Program coordinators or instructors who require students to take multiple placement tests can now create a group of tests linked by prerequisite scores that will be delivered to students in one continuous test experience. Assuming students satisfy the prerequisite score for the next test in a group, they will be prompted to continue immediately after they submit the current test. If they don’t meet the prerequisite score, placement will be calculated using the results of the just-completed test.
