Basic information about the WebCAPE

Foreign language departments are continually faced with the task of advising and placing freshmen and transfer students in appropriate courses. This decision is often based primarily upon the number of classes the student has previously taken in the language. However, placement on this basis does not take into account several important factors which determine the student’s actual proficiency with the language, such as the effectiveness of the student’s past teacher(s), the specific information covered, extracurricular or other out-of-class exposure to the language.
