Placement Tests

Free placement testing is provided by CTY Online Programs to ensure the most appropriate placement into online offerings such as Intermediate Chess, Honors Physics, and a variety of computer science courses (in addition to some CTY Summer Programs offerings, such as the Physics course in Hong Kong). Only students with a qualifying score in the relevant area should be registered for placement testing. (Students with a qualifying math or verbal score may be registered for the Intermediate Chess, Advanced Web Design, or JavaScript placement tests, as these courses are open to math or verbal qualifiers.)

To register a student for an online placement test, a parent or guardian must fill out the request form and agree to the Terms and Conditions.

Once CTY receives the request, the parent or guardian will receive an email with instructions for accessing the placement testing service.

Immediate feedback from the placement testing service will provide guidance about the most appropriate CTY Online Programs course. (If the test is for determining placement in CTY Summer Programs’ Physics course in Hong Kong, the student will be notified within one week of taking the placement test.)

World language placement tests are also available on request to ctyonline@jhu.eduThese tests, which are emailed, help determine appropriate placement into a CTY Online Programs Arabic, Chinese, or Spanish language course.
