Placement Testing Information

Placement Testing Information

Placement Testing:

The only placement testing that is held for Los Altos HS is for Mandarin Chinese.
For all other subjects, including math, students self-select their course/level.


Mandarin Placement Test / Evaluation:

The test is for interested incoming students who have prior experience of learning Mandarin (weekend Chinese school, private tutoring, after school programs, etc) and would like to get their proficiency level tested so they can sign up for the right Mandarin class.
8th graders who are currently enrolled in Egan or Bullis Charter School's Mandarin program should sign up for Mandarin 2. These students should not take the test unless recommended by their Mandarin teacher. The test is mainly for students who have prior learning experience through weekend Chinese school, after school programs, private tutoring and would like to get their proficiency level tested so they can sign up for the right Mandarin class.

The Mandarin placement test will be given in person this year.

We will give an in-person Mandarin placement test on Wednesday Feb 9th. Students can choose either the 3:30-4:15 p.m. or 4:30-5:15 p.m. testing window. Register at:
