Services for NAIT students
The NAIT Assessment Centre personnel specialize in scheduling and invigilating deferral, conflict, distance and other NAIT assessments. Current NAIT students must work with their program area(s) to schedule their assessment(s) in L142.
Placement testing can help you fulfill the Grade 10 English entrance requirement for admission into Academic Upgrading and can also be used to place you into Academic Upgrading courses for which you cannot prove prerequisites.
Placement tests are available for Math, English and Chemistry. A placement test for the NAIT English as a Second Language (ESL) program is also available.
English Language Proficiency Exam
The English Language Proficiency exam will evaluate your ability to read, write and speak in the English. This exam is required if you apply to a credit program and English is not your first language.
