The Oxford Online Placement Test (OOPT) is a placement test for English courses. Wageningen in'to Languages uses the computer test to determine a participant’s level of English. Using the OOPT results, Wageningen in'to Languages then recommends a start level for the participant.

How does it work?

The test lasts a maximum of 80 minutes. The participant answers open and multiple-choice questions designed to test his/her listening and reading skills as well as grammar. The computer sets the questions and corrects them. The level of the questions automatically changes according to the student’s knowledge until a constant level is achieved.

The results

The results of the OOPT are linked to the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR), a framework of reference for language levels. By using the CEFR classifications, Wageningen in’to Languages can ensure that a student starts the right course.

Who should take the OOPT?
