Why you should come in for tutoring
Paula Warrick - Feb 27, 2015
Students, this is a fantastic way to build a level of proficiency that will enable you to apply for a nationally competitive, language-oriented scholarship such as a Fulbright Grant. You can set your own learning goals for your session, and these can be tailored to your proposal for research or teaching. I have had a number of tutoring sessions and have learned a lot.
Not a clear indicator of proficiency
Corrie P - Feb 16, 2015
I recently took the Spanish proficiency test. It was 3 articles in Spanish and then 5 questions in English for each article. I consider myself fairly proficient - I can have long conversations in Spanish on various topics - and I could translate about 80% of the articles without having to look in the dictionary. However, the questions and answers are very confusing and not well written. This is a test on attention to detail, NOT proficiency in language.
Very nice staff

However, I would like to know what questions I got wrong. Also, there were typos in the English answers.
Nice staff, but I would like test feedback
Jonathan Royden - Feb 14, 2015
The staff was very nice, and I appreciated being given a dictionary to use instead of having to bring my own. I also like how we immediately receive our scores. To be clear, the service and experience was very enjoyable. However, I received no test feedback other than my final score. I want to know which questions I got right and which I got wrong. Perhaps the test center doesn't have control over that, but whether its a Blackboard issue or something else, I hope it can be corrected.

I just took the Tools of Research exam. The testing center staff was very helpful and kind. I'm not sure if the testing center staff is in control of this, but I didn't appreciate the lack of feedback on the exam. I would like to know which specific questions I got wrong and what the answers were.
